When it comes to poetry do you find yourself sitting looking at a blank page and eventually giving up?Well that tends to happen to us all. There's hope! What I have found that works well for me is thinking of things that relate to experiences in your life. Poetry is about writing "all emotion" Happiness, love, loss, heartache, etc. If you've ever found yourself so full of emotion writing is a great way to release those feelings. Here are some tips on getting started.
Pick a topic that interests you, write a sentence for "Example". If I wanted to write about flowers, Basic sentence "The red flower I hold in my hand" by me writing this sentence all you know is that I have a red flower in my hand what I want you to know is how I feel when I hold this in my hand.
"Example" inserting meaning "For my red flower lay softly in my hand covered by the tears I shower upon this land" Not only are you now writing how you feel your reader has the ability to understand you.This can also be very rewarding for yourself by giving your reader the opportunity to commit to your poetry.
So now you have a few tips on how to write poetry and how to interpret meaning from it.Remember be creative, try different things, do what works best for you. I hope my way of understanding poetry will be of value to you good luck.

Why not write a book? When you think about it, it really isn't that hard to do. What is hard to do is sell a book, so don't sell it, give it away!
I know there are several marketing companies who will "ghost write" a book for you and put your name on it. You write a few lines and it is disclosed so you are not an imposture and the book is yours. Don't do it!
I have a better idea, why don't you actually write a book? It isn't hard and you will find it extremely enjoyable and amazingly easy. Plus it is authentic and it will actually mean something to you. Here are a few simple tips:
· Write in generalities, the simpler the better
· Create an outline
· Have at least 12 chapters
· Keep the book 70-90 pages
· Use at least 14 size fonts
· Use the internet for ideas
· Do not plagiarize, simply use numerous ideas and write it yourself
· Make sure your picture is on the cover, family members also will add credibility
· Think of a great title that will show you off
Here is another secret; almost no one will read it! Reading it is not the idea, giving it to a prospect is the idea!
When you give a prospect your book you are elevated in their eyes. Where can you go to get your book published? This used to be a problem but it is no more and it couldn't be easier. A simple internet search will provide numerous options for publishing your book.

NOTE from Donovan Baldwin - I have seen a similar technique used on three separate occasions. The authors gave free seminars related to their subjects, one was how to get free PR, and then, after the presentation, sold several copies of a small, inexpensive book which they had written on the subject. I do not write books, but use free articles to promote various products and services.

Writers specialising in fillers and readers' letters receive much high fees, word for word, than virtually any other writing genre. Fillers are small pieces, often just 100 words or so, and they can generate hundreds or even thousands of dollars in writing awards or for what editors pick as the week's best letter or filler. But writers have to be constantly on the lookout for unusual subjects for their fillers and they must always be hot on market research. These tips will help grow your income from filler writing:
* Keep your eyes and ears open for anything remotely interesting to use in your letters and fillers. Look for unusual household tips, try your hand at writing poems, look for press errors and other popular filler types.
* Study other published fillers, especially those in magazines you'd like to write for. You can't, of course, copy other people's work but there is no copyright on ideas, so what you see in one magazine can be borrowed to form the basis of a filler you write for another. Other things to watch out for include recipes, jokes you can change a little, recipes you might alter slightly, crossword and puzzle grids you can adapt to use in your work.
* Study at least a dozen or so publications of the type you would like to write for. Rank these in order of preference, according to filler types, payment, subject matter. Start writing and submitting material for those highest on your list.
* Think pictures. Think illustrations. Instead of sending just words to your target publication, include a photograph, maybe a cartoon or line drawing. As always, careful study of your target magazine will establish editorial preferences.
* Search your own experiences for material ready to be written up as it stands or amended to suit.
* Always have a notepad and pen at hand, and preferably a pocket camera and mini recorder. It's amazing where inspiration and ideas strike and how often there is nothing handy to record the incident. My best ideas come when I'm in the bath, ironing, gardening, or walking the dog! Those notepads pinned to every wall and popped into my handbag have repaid their cost many times over!
Once that's done you can look forward to regular high rewards for just a few minutes' easy work.
