Lately I just can't write. On a rare ocassion I'll be lucky to get a below average hack poem written down, but I can almost NEVER EVER write to a melody or make a song with lyrics. I used to do that a lot and I haven't looked at my old poetry in a while but I just feel they are awful. At the very least I don't attempt to make things rhyme all the damn time like I used to.
I think maybe if I could have a band with people I can really connect with I'd be able to write better.
yeah, especially the last part. i don't know how some of these bands manage to get together and stay together. it's pretty amazing when you think about it. or it is when i think about it. anyway.
about the writing thing, i think if you relax and stop thinking about the fact that you're not writing you might be able to start again. maybe you just need a break and don't realise it.
anyway sorry if this isn't helpful. but i feel the same as you most of the time - i can't stand to look at old stuff i've written, even stuff i wrote at school and got good marks for. the thought of it makes me cringe.
