The writer's burnout? And yet we move on. Write we must, because we love it, and light instantly glow on our faces when we do... the shine in our hearts shows in our writing. Esp. after an experience of pain and sorrow, we are able to encourage others. Keep the writer's passion burning in your heart, fellow writer. I will too.
Thank you for this entry. Writers burnout or overload. Good job. Keep writing.
I liked your last comment about never attempting to make a poem rhyme again...pretty cute!!

In defense of the dreaded deadlines (which they definitely are)...without them, my writers procrastination would swallow me up and I would never get anything submitted. :)
I liked the last line as well. Good job.
Can pull down in sorrow
a thousand heartstrings.
And cause a thousand more to
Beat for joy!

I love the above. If done right, the crowds hush, are drawn in as one!
Some very beautiful word-images here. I also found the last sentence particularly cute - you drew your reader right into your struggles with it!
Great use of language! Yes, sometimes deadlines defeat creativity... but sometimes, amazingly, they help. I can relate to the ending... it's SO hard to write a good rhyming poem!
One of the great features of FaithWriters is Jan's Writing Class which can be found by clicking on the Forums at the top of this page. Jan is currently looking at poetry construction and I'm sure you'll find what she has to say most helpful.
