False Poets????

surprised-man-looking-at-his-left_1149-1195

Yes…Believe it or not false poets are out there but we are often so caught up in our own little worlds that they become invisible.

But the questions is ‘Who is a false poet/writer?’

A person who….

Hahaha thought I was going to tell but I want you all to find that out for yourself. Drop your comments below.

Moving on…. lets get to juicy part of things

Ways in which a person can be seen as a false poet/writer

Stealing the works of others –  In other words PLAGIARISM!!!! demeaning the value of someone else’s work by claiming that its your own without even giving any credit to the author. My! I wonder how people do it and still feel good about themselves hmmmm.

Another thing is writing just to impress someone. Maybe you don’t think you are talented enough to write a piece of your own but if you take another person’s work source it!!

Stealing ideas

Writing anything that comes to mind and calls it art just for the money – This commonality isn’t just opened to poets but writers as well get caught up too. You could be a poet but putting numbers on a page and calling it a poem is ridiculous. Then again you could be a writer and binding blank pages with no cover and calling it a book is even worst all in the name of art. This certainly isn’t fooling anyone but yourself.

Money shouldn’t be your ultimate goal when writing but embracing your art and adding value to people lives should matter more. Its not all about the money young writers!!!

Yes after putting in tons of hard work you would want to see some monetary returns but don’t let rise to your head.

Money

 

 

The Rich overusing their power –  This point may turn some heads but its a fact. The ‘High Class’ people as some may say, misuse their power just to make a name for themselves. But how is that fair to the people who are actually working hard and trying to live their dream. Not because your family may be billionaires or have a well recognized name gives anyone the right to overuse that power when the area you are forcing isn’t your field of expertise. Its not just unfair but wrong to the persons who toil day in and day out to honestly make a difference in this world.

This is between you an me right so if you do tell someone, tell them to not tell anyone okay friend 🙂

Music is the first thing I turn to. Helps to calm my nerves in any situation. I even turn to music when I’m writing articles, books, poems or having a mini writer’s block. For me it totally works!!!!

If you could only choose one for the rest of your life which would you choose, music or television?

I would choose music. The answer from the previous question should explain the deep love I have for music.
