A need to get rid of the stress, the negative energy inside me.

I would say my outlook on life, as well as relationship with God, and appreciation that I have for creativity in words, are 3 things that inspire me to write.  I am moved when I hear inspiring lyrics in a song or see something that stimulates my perception.  Knowing, understanding, learning, growing, and maturing in faith, there is always something to fuel the fire of the mind.  I don't know, I just get excited, and before you know it, I'm halfway through a poem.  Inspiration and innovation are difficult to maintain, especially when you hold yourself to a high level or regard in your rudimentary discipline.  I tend to mix some of that into my work (obedience, discipline).  Anyway, other things inspire me as well.  Inspiration is just something that comes and goes at the right moment, at least for me.

I have long had the urge to create something worth reading, being both dyslexic and having ADHD this is something I struggle with.    I guess writing has always been a way of putting myself to the test as well as clear my head and put things to rest.
The next logical step, take the plunge and be brave enough to share.

Typically strong emotion whether pain or joy. Occasionally a unique phrase will prompt a whole poem.

The stories and emotions that lie hidden within me, waiting to be spoken.

For me, my biggest inspirations come from my past life memories, my spiritual beliefs and personal philosophies, this current life of mine and all I've been through in it thus far... and also my deepest thoughts, feelings, dreams and desires. People I've loved (and love), things I've experienced, and all the things that have, and that continue to, make me the person that I am. In short, I have many, many inspirations! And so, I never run out of things to write about. :)

It depends. I could be feeling a deep emotion, and it comes out. Or I could be writing my books and a scene inspires me. The Quiet, liqueur and sex. Not in that order.

A dear friend of mine was a high priestess of poetry in my eyes. She was very political and revolutionary about topics like, social economics, current events on genocide, race in America and globally to name a few. Unfortunately, she took her own life July of 2017. I was always a story teller but I never dabbled into poetry until that year. So, it's bittersweet for me because I love writing rhymes for spoken word open mics but I wish that my dear friend could have heard me flow one good time.

Why do I write.....Sjeesh thats a looooong story, the story of my life. I started writing at a very young age in diaries.
I found out that I had a special relationship with the pages so I continued. It allowed me to focus more on feelings and to get a grip on them as I was aging. I also found books and poetry. I remember sometimes sitting and writing for days on end, it was very freeing.

Later, when I lost a very important person in my life  writing became a healing process and path but also I discovered another thing. Through opening myself up to the writings that formed from my pen I could reach sort of an altered state. I started to divide these writings, the poetry from the so called automatic writings. It was one big healing and learning process.
