I think my knowledge of people I've known in my life creeps into my work all the time. I think I use it as a way of understanding, and sharing what I've learned. Sometimes when I read another author's book I'll read about a situation going on with the characters and I'll just feel like I can see how it was translated from real life. I'll feel that the writer knew exactly what something felt like that they've been through or they witnessed someone go through, because they described it so perfectly.

If and only if I really like the person, they know that I write, and they have asked. All three are requirements.

pretty much every piece i've ever written is about someone i know, or about myself. it's all personal. a lot of them are about other people or how they make me feel.

Most, if not all, of my pieces are inspired by someone or something someone has done.....however, I can't recall ever setting out to write something for someone...

It's really difficult! I've only ever written about two about someone. I've written a few gifts, though most of them were lame ^^;

Hm...well, you've read my pieces...most of them seem to speak of some past event or emotion....but to be specifically about somone....that is mabe 10% of my gallery.

I am quite sure that any pieces you have written as gifts are not lame and read beautifully.

I guess all of it? Things that people do or say generally inspire stories or scenes in my writing... And some people I know actually become characters.

Quite a lot but not all. People are a very rich source of inspiration though.

that's a hard question - I'd say it's a combination of the last two options. I write what I feel a majority of the time and people in my life make me feel certain ways so in that way, I guess, my writing is inspired by people in my life - not all of it but some.

I don't think I've ever gone into a piece thinking "I'll write for this person or that person".
I just write something and later realize where or from whom the inspiration originated.

which did you pick?

I chose "I will sometimes if someone inspires me" but that is almost all of my poems, in all honesty. Because I often write about things that happen to me, unintentionally a lot of it is about people in my life. and I'm also very inspired by writers I admire, so I often try to memorize their techniques and patterns and mimic them in my own ways.

Hmm, what did it used to be? :? I can't even remember now! I took an incredibly long break once, years ago, and I think it was then that I got rid of my old icon, whatever it was. As for now, I've just never bothered replacing it! :lmao: I'm not sure what I'd put in there, anyway. Hmm... perhaps something wonderfully symbolic, but definitely not me. Oh, I have an idea!

Almost everything I write is somehow inspired by or for someone in particular, but I have recently decided, over the last 12 seconds, that all my poetry is dedicated to you. :B
