📚✍🏾Writer’s Tip✍🏾📚

📓Always Bring Along, Pen & Paper. ✒️ With modern technology, we can tap-out a poem fairly quickly. I’ve used this method a few times as well. However, I rather my pen & paper. It gives the writing a more bonding & connecting experience for me. Feeling the rhythm of my pen, as the words from my Soul & thoughts, smoothly splurt themselves across the page…It’s so freeing & deep. Also at times, a poem pops into my head so quickly that I only have a moment to jot it all down. Especially at 3am. I’ve woken up quite a few … Continue reading 📚✍🏾Writer’s Tip✍🏾📚

“FOOD!” & Poetry…~Maxwanette A Poetess

FOOD!!! No matter what your specific tastes are, we all have them. Everything & Anything, can and often is written about and or expressed through Poetry, involving…? You guessed it, “FOOD!” And why not? An old Jamaican saying states, “Food is The Staff Of Life”, DEEP. During funerals, in many cultures, the food is SERIOUS BUSINESS. Think about it? Who hasn’t eaten something so good, that you knew you were dissolving into its rich blend, touched every sensory perception that you had & some you newly discovered and or forgot? You that went down just right as it soothed its … Continue reading “FOOD!” & Poetry…~Maxwanette A Poetess

*What Should I Write About???”~Maxwanette A Poetess

“What Should I Write About???” You can write about ANYTHING & EVERYTHING! When it comes to Poetry, there’s no limit! It could be something or someone that inspires you, maybe about a rainy day, or even something as simple as cooking. Pluck your ideas from the greatest inspiration…LIFE! Now you never know when an inspiring thought or a few lines of Poetry, will spring into your mind. So, I suggest that you always have something to write with. I personally find, the Notes App on my phone is a great tool as well. I can tap my ideas down and … Continue reading *What Should I Write About???”~Maxwanette A Poetess

*Children Can Be Poets Too!#2: Children Are Poets Too…Or Can Be!

Why Use This Tip Children recognize the power of poetry—its ability to inspire emotions and the special pleasure you can get from memorizing a favorite poem or reading it again and again. But children may not know where to start in writing their own poems. And they may not realize that poems come in a wide variety of flavors—from succinct haikus, to ones that follow conventions of word choice and line length, to the-sky-is-the-limit free verse. Help a child recognize the elements of a poem and explore different ways of writing one, and you’ll also enable the child to become … Continue reading *Children Can Be Poets Too!#2: Children Are Poets Too…Or Can Be!

*”Do You Know A Publishing Scam, When You See One?”

“Now, I love resources! Especially as a writer/poet, they lead to many opportunities. I often share these finds here and on my other, social media pages. I always include, that one should read all the rules, requirements and “DO YOUR HOMEWORK!”

When I am entering any contests, paying for ANYTHING in general, trust and be sure, that I will be running them through the BBB (Better Business Bureau – https://www.bbb.org/en/us). Every state has one & you can get free and useful information, that can save you a possible future headache. You can also file complaints against a business that has caused you some form of damages (with proof of course). Because for me? Reading reviews aren’t always good enough. Many companies hire people to make-up false reviews. So, I like to check things out as much as possible. Things still do occur, but it’s worth the efforts.

I stumbled across this article, “3 Signs of A Publishing Scam” and felt it was indeed, Blog-Worthy, lol!

* What Is Considered Previously Published Writing?

Posted on November 19, 2013 by Writer’s Relief Staff • 144 Comments It is common practice for journals and literary agents to reject previously published writing, but what exactly does previously published mean? Why are most literary agents and editors unwilling to take a chance on work that has already appeared elsewhere? When is it appropriate to submit previously published work? The answers to these questions have become increasingly hard to pin down as the Internet takes on a huge role in the writing world. The definition of previously published: Back when print publishing was the sole option for sharing … Continue reading * What Is Considered Previously Published Writing?

*The Two Minutes It Takes To Read This Will Improve Your Writing Forever

Worth Doing “The Two Minutes It Takes To Read This Will Improve Your Writing Forever.” Posted on July 22, 2016 You’re busy, so I’ll keep this quick. Following are the simplest tips I can give you to easily — and forever — improve the quality of your writing. Delete the word “that.” At least 90% of the times you use the word “that” can be removed from your writing and it will instantly make your sentence stronger. Example: “You believe that I’m lying, but I’m not.” becomes “You believe I’m lying, but I’m not.” Delete the words “I think.” It adds nothing. Remove it … Continue reading *The Two Minutes It Takes To Read This Will Improve Your Writing Forever

*Writing Tip #10

“How imprtent is gramer & spellin when writing.” Well unless you want to appear to be illiterate, it’s a big deal. Sure, you understood it, but it’s time consuming and it takes away from the message being relayed. It simply isn’t a good look.   Proper writing, grammar and spelling is important in everyday use. When I was a supervisor, I cannot tell you how many grammar mistakes I would come across in cover letters and resumes. Resumes such as these were not considered, as it is a representation of the individual. It matters .  Okay, everyone isn’t great with … Continue reading *Writing Tip #10

*Writing Tip #8: “Just Do It!”

(picture derived from Google) “What should I write?” How many of us, have asked this question? Probably all of us, at one time or another. I suggest that you don’t stress it. Simply grab a pen and some paper, cuddle up with your keyboard or maybe you rather record it. Whichever vice you choose, it’s fun and creative to just brainstorm. Be free with your thoughts, even if they seem wild, mild, boring or exciting. The point is to get it on paper. You can then go over it. This is a method that I use often. When going over … Continue reading *Writing Tip #8: “Just Do It!”

*Writing Tip #7: “Proofreading!”…Yes, It Matters.~Maxwanette A Poetess

I don’t know where to begin, but I am sure we can all relate “Proofreading!”…Yes, it matters. As a Poet, what is being said, how it is being said, read and interpreted is imperative to poetic expression. Punctuation and grammar set the tones of the words, as well as stress the intended meanings.  The worst thing is to read a wonderful poem, novel and or article and it’s laced with grammatical errors.  For me, it takes away from the piece. It has happened to me on occasion, but I try my best to stay on top of it. Because face … Continue reading *Writing Tip #7: “Proofreading!”…Yes, It Matters.~Maxwanette A Poetess

*Writing Tip #6: New to Writing Poetry? Then Start With A Haiku!

(Picture derived from Google) “My Ancestors” Ah, My Ancestors. (5 syllable) Embrace me with your beauty. (7 syllable) Long, strong, green-stemmed souls. (5 syllable) by Maxwanette A. Poetess If you’re new to writing poetry, I find that the best and easiest one to try, is the Haiku. They’re short, 3 lined and follow the 5-7-5 syllable method. “But how do I write it???”, the proverbial question, laced with a nice, nasal whine, lol! For some, writing poetry comes as easy as they breathe. I looked at this picture just now, felt the vibes, and there’s the Haiku. For others, it’s a … Continue reading *Writing Tip #6: New to Writing Poetry? Then Start With A Haiku!
