Writers Mood

“The we’re in when we start penning a poem or tale will dictate how that piece feels when read. Even in social media if you’re furious or sad when you send out a tweet your attuned readers will know that. Does that mean you should only write happy? No, writing when we’re sad or angry can actually be cathartic. Writing when we don’t feel it can often lead to our best work too. The advice is too know your mood and work with it, don’t fight it.”

I wrote this poem in answer to the following prompts:
FOWC with Fandango  — Mercurial
Your Daily Word Prompt — Guff
Ragtag Daily Prompt — Gobsmacked

Writer’s Mood

This writer has a mercurial mood
His creative mind rather skewed
When happy he writes good stuff
When miserable a pile of guff

Something interesting must be stated
When I hate what I created
‘It’s great!’ say my devoted readers
You’re great cheerleaders

For the writer mood is key
Writing sets our emotions free
However, you feel tell a tale
Let your imagination set sail

Let your feelings be abstract
Leave your readers gobsmacked
Pen a bestselling story
And revel in your glory


Thanks for reading my friends.

  1. This poem has a lovely rhythmic hum, and very true of writing. Getting the feel of our character’s mood is so important. I had multiple personalities when writing Local Time, so many hats to wear. From chilled to icy and pure-bred bitch, to enthusiastic, passionate, trouble making, drunk…omg so much fun! Love this poem, Mason!
