Ok, so here are my issues and interests
This is a biggie for me. I tend to leave things until the last moment, even big biology experiments and technical papers (sorry Mrs. Yi). Also, self-imposed deadlines don’t work, so I often don’t really think about what I am writing or just choose to wait until I am inspired to write, which can be every day for a week or once in three months.
2.lack of ideas
Most of the time when I want to write, I don’t know what I want to write about. I need to work on my brainstorming and set aside time for that instead of just rushing to write whatever.
3.different forms of poetry
I would like to explore different types of poetry, like limericks, sonnets, and some other forms of Japenese poetry besides the haiku. I tend to stick with longer versions of haiku (just repeating the pattern) or rhyming poems.
4. different subjects
Most of my poems are about nature, and I would like to branch out to different subjects, which goes back to the brainstorming.
5. working on short stories
I can’t start a story without drawing it out until it’s more like a chapter book. I like to slowly build up to my climax, which defeats the purpose of short stories. Perhaps it’s also my feeling towards short stores- to me, they end too soon, and I want more. I also spend my own sweet time elaborating, so I need to be a bit more terse.
