    Hello from Alaska!

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by RichardOgata, Dec 12, 2016.

    Hello,

    My name is Richard and I used to be a member on here with a long forgotten account. Back then I used the forum to help motivate me to write poetry after graduating from high school by trying to post something daily as a part of a digital journal entry. That was several years ago, and I have recently felt motivated to start writing poetry again. Though I do not think I can post something original daily, I would like to make a decent collection of poems and see where that takes me.

    True! I think declaring my intent to be more creative publicly will help keep me motivated and accountable too. ;)

    Welcome back!

    Same here :) Some people lose the motivation to keep writing if the basic gist of their idea is already out there, but I am not one of them, and I hope you're not either :p

    Exactly. I thought that if I could make some good connections with people on the forum who are interested in my writing challenge, then my brain would take over and start motivating me :)

    I started a Progress Journal to catalog myself:
