Lynne Schmidt : part four

What do you find most difficult about writing poetry?

Starting, and the pressure of “good” poetry. There are some poems that aren’t meant to move mountains, and I have to remind myself that it’s okay to allow quieter, more gentle poems to exist. Outside of that, I have to be in the mood to write, so I TRY to write a poem a day, but sometimes it’ll be a poem a week, or a poem every two weeks. It’s hard to get into the mindset, or to properly hear my muse.
