so much of what i write seems to have the same "tricks", for lack of a better word. it's like i keep coming back to the same sentence structures, the same themes, even down to the same groupings of words. at times i've found this very limiting when trying to say something in a poem, and at other times, i've become quote comfortable in the language of it all.
does that make sense?
has anyone else fought there way through this, only to finally become happy with it?
i'd be interested in others thoughts on this ...
now, as for my actual voice ...
a laugh. I'm thinking of the opening scene in "king of marvin gardens"
Perhaps you need more interaction, or a different kind of interaction, Tim. I think it's okay to have familiar territory that you return to: we all need that. You should be growing, too. You should have the sensation of having a wild ride as you write. You might run into dead ends and you might hit some really open spaces, but it should never feel too familiar. We have to keep pushing ourselves. Failing is better than not trying.
Did I address your concern, or not? :-)
Anyway, got on over to YouTube, so you can hear what I sound like.
Maybe there are other ways of getting our voices to each other; I don't know that much about it. But YouTube just seemed like an obvious way.
But for now, all are spared my voice.
abirdman: that was a treat! A witty poem, indeed. Your voice is clear and strong. How or where does one upload one's voice like this?
Come, everyone, let's not be too shy.
I have another poem I'll share, here, called "Lizards".
And I'll formally introduce myself... I'm Jay, with the childhood nickname of Jaybird, hence birdman, which is always "taken," so I often use abirdman as my user name. I hope you're enjoying LibraryThing as much as I am. Your groups are giving me some interesting reading. Thanks.
Beyond The Sea
And I loved hearing "Beyond the Sea." I can't carry a tune in a bucket, so you have my absolute respect in that regard!
