How To Start Writing A Poem?
Hello Friends! Today I’ll let you know how to write Poems. Writing poems isn’t hard if you already own a ‘Hidden Writer’ within you. See friends, before you begin, I want to make you aware of some important things.
Here are some tips:
1. Select a topic which sounds nice to you.
Many people start writing their poem before selecting the topic. It makes your work difficult & time consuming. You need a good topic so that your poem will be worth reading! So, choose your topic carefully.
2. Look for some Inspiration.
Before you start writing even a single line, you must be sure that you have came across a lot of vocabulary & you know how to make your stuff versatile. Pre-reading some books or articles/poems helps us with good reading as well as writing skills.
3. Concentrate on your Words.
Writers are alive because of their Words! You must have enough knowledge regarding your words which you are going to use. You must know how to reframe the sentences & where to put them! Your Grammar should be excellent.
4. Don’t go on Rhymes, go on the Message.
There is a misconception regarding Rhymes. Most of the people think Rhyming words are the Key of Poems. Alas, Its absolutely wrong!! (When I wrote my 1st poem at the age of 13, I filled it with rhyming words & nothing else. In the end I found It is meaningless & I had to throw it in the dustbin!)
5. Your poem shouldn’t advertise a Dictionary!!
I know you didn’t get what I wrote! (hehehe!!!) I wish to tell you that your poem should be clear to readers. You should write a poem with less words & more meaning. Don’t use very difficult words. Your poem should be compatible with reader’s basic grammar. If readers have to sit with a dictionary to read your poem, surely its your own loss.
6. First Line & Last Line is the Real Impression!
While writing a poem you will definitely notice that starting with the first line & framing the last line are most difficult jobs in the whole poem! Unfortunately, you have to work more for both of them because these two lines give more significance to your poem. Readers can’t remember your whole poem but they can easily remember your starting & ending line. So make sure you decorate both of them!
7. Last but not the Least!
