If you are struggling with the physical nature of writing if the pen or keyboard hurt you to type or just can’t sit down for that long etc… then you might want to try some speech to text software – many phones and tablet computers (iPads etc) come with basic set ups. The software can be a pain at first but once you work out how to talk to it then the possibilities are amazing!

It also works for dotting down inspiration whilst out and about or doing house work.

Even if you don’t need to use it have a little play. Some people find the way and how they write affects what sort of poetry they produce so it is always a good idea to try something new.
