Hi Emma, I'm working on my first novel. I started it last year & have a word count of 50,000 plus, with still more to go. I have lost my drive a little during lockdown, but have focussed far more on poetry - mainly because I find it easier & more relaxing. I will get back on track soon, but I see no point in forcing myself to write, just for the sake of it. The writing itself will be forced too. Thanks to you & Ryan for your anazing loce & support during this year. Xx
So what do we think makes a poet?
In WHAT MAKES A POET?

I'm not sure I can say it any better than all the poets who have already commented. I love playing with words; being able to express my thoughts and emotions in an unconstrained way; having the freedom to be me and stuff what anyone else thinks. I can make comments about politics; things in life that irritate me in a way that may be direct, but in poetic language doesn't always seem so direct. I love everyone's answers!
