Students - More and more, I believe that writing without a plan is a good practice. Sometimes people sit down and think, "I cannot write because I do not already have a writing idea." But if you sit and just start writing any old gibberish, an idea will come and sit on your shoulder!
The other day I sat and just wrote the words What if? in the margin of my big black notebook, and today's poem showed up.
Try it sometime. Sit down to write when you have no idea what you will write about. Just start. Let the idea sit on your shoulder! (Don't think it will not come. Such thoughts scare ideas away!)
If you're not sure what to write, start with What if?
