Hi all,

I hope some of you still remember me. It's hard to believe, but I've been gone from these forums for eight months. You could make a baby in that time. Maybe that means if I come back to PIP now, I'll be reborn as a great poet. LOL  

I've had a serious case of writer's block. I still can't write like I used to. All I seem to be able to come up with is cute little one liners or "Hallmark Cards-like" rhymes. Jeez, is this what's become of me?

Normally, I wouldn't be that concerned about losing the Muse, but eight months?--c'mon, really now! Something's got to give soon or I'll simply forget it all together and never even think about trying to write another poem.

Anyway, thanks for listening.


Best to you all,

Gene

I remember you! And I understand, really! Try writing prose..that may help. Or go to the challenge forum...or become the resident pest in the Alley...you don't need to write prose or poetry there..just opinion!

Hi Sharon --
Hmm, a pest in the Alley. Sounds like a good idea. LOL

Hi Nan --
I enjoy reading, but I really miss writing. I want to be able to share more than just lurking around.

of course i remember you and i have missed your writing lots and am always waiting faithfully for your return...

im sorry to hear of your troubles...how about trying new forms of writing such as cinquains, sijo, couplets etc...

if nothing else, do post your cute one-liners...i will love to read them and besides poetry doesnt have to be long, remember?....

hope all is well

Hmmm...writer's block for eight months.  I just got through an eight month spell myself.  I once had a full twelve months of that writer's block.  I have a box full of unfinished poems.  I could start them but half way through it would fall apart.  Talk about the frustration.  It was bad.  But like everything that starts, it must come to an end sometime.  I am glad to see you back.  I was around back then but known as Scorched Dragon.  I had to leave that name behind, plus the new name fits me better.

Wow 8 months?!
Well even though I do not know you, welcome back! Hope to see your writing around.



I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

Nice to hear from you. I always liked how you took on new forms--like Haiku. I remember when you weren't even sure what a Haiku was and now your writing them like a pro.

White Wolf --
Thanks for the encouragement. I think I remember giving you (S.D.) advice once when you were going through a dry spell. I'm always great at giving advice, but can't take my own.

Dopey_Dope --
Thanks, I'll be looking for your poems.

Hi Gene, I understand how you feel.  I have only been away for a couple of weeks but I already feel like a stranger.  I have also been battling writers block and have been trying hard to get back into the swing of things.  Welcome back, may we both be filled with lots of inspiration!

Gene,
   So glad to see you back, and I hope to see you writing poetry here again soon. You are so talented and I know many of us in the pub have missed you a lot. I hope you can come to enjoy all that Passions has to offer again. I'll be waiting to see your something special for Munda in the pub.

GENE!!!!!! YOU'RE BACK!!!!!
Forget you? Of course I didn't forget you! I wrote a welcome poem for you! lol   How have you been??? Yeah, I've been having a lot of writer's block lately...didn't know this serious ailment could affect dragons, but it looks like it can.... Oh well, that's okay, I don't have much of a block right now! Hope you don't either!!!

Hope to see your new posts in the Pub, 'cause I'm afraid I won't venture outside into the Opens just the now...the Pub is getting hard enough to keep up with much less the Opens...

Best of dragon's luck to you,

Little Spyro T. Dragon


Though my body be
Human, my heart and soul be
That of a dragon.

Watching the poets
Passions' guardian dragon
Moves with the rhymes' flow.

Welcome Home Gene....there's a lot of good reading...lurking doesn't even come into play when you post a response...the muse?  She'll come...I'm packaging her up right now....she's been on my shoulder and I could use a break [as could the rest of Passions!...LOL]
