I often find myself running out of things to write about. For example, I’m even struggling to figure out what to write about for this blog post.
I believe that it is important to read poetry daily that isn’t your own. Doing so can help you gain inspiration from other poets. You may discover new ideas to new forms, words, and themes.
When I read poems from my peers, I am more inclined to not “steal” their work simply because their ideas come from such a tight knit community. However, I am more inclined to borrow and use other ideas other poets have published and incorporate them into my work.
Finding new ideas and concepts to write about is always difficult to me, but inspiration from others can help guide me into producing a great poem.
