As a person trying to write poetry, I always have a problem trying to get subject material(especially for the past six months) and formatting it, or trying to put it to specific forms like a verse. Also, I seem to have a problem with keeping on point with the main topic of the poem, and I seem to go off with imagery to the point where it can be jumbled. I believe this came from both of my creative writing classes because we never went in depth on fiction, writing, poetry, rules, genres, ect.
If I may ask without trying to sound like a previously asked question, what are some tips from you all? Am I over-thinking everything or confused or what?
I apologize if I sound like another inquiry into the matter. Thank you so much for taking the time to read this, as I am brand new to this site.
