expand writing?
So I've been writing a lot lately (for me at least)...maybe a page or so of poems/lyrics every day. But one thing I've realized is that I go back to the same general idea/theme.

Also, it seems that my melodies tend to fit with whatever song I listened to last....

Sorry for vagueness :'(

bump? This post is two weeks old, but I'm still pretty much at the same point. Sometimes I have really good poems that can be useable if expanded...but I'm always going back to the same themes overall.

What themes do you keep going back to?

Green_Ghoul 09-30-2012 06:28 PM

sap, filling, closing, "freedom" (in quotes cus it's usually a fabrication), fears, escaping, sinking, melting, and the number two.

Perhaps you could link one topic to another in some way? Or if something happens in your day that leaves a lasting impression on you, write about it.

kk I'll try those and then I'll read more books/poetry/lyrics...maybe I just have a limited vocabulary right now.

I have this same issue. I often write these psychedelic drug and existential lyrics, but I'd like to write in many more different fields. Tough to break habits
