A: The Themes are simply one broad idea put out every weekend. It is only to help people with inspiration, or just for fun.

A: There is a "Theme of the Week" folder, but you do not have to submit your work there. For example, if you write a poem inspired by a Theme, you may submit it to "Theme of the Week" folder or to the "Poetry Free/Blank Verse" folder. Same goes with any other type of writing.

A: Nope. Make your works as long or short as you please.

Boom... boom... boom... boom...
The steady beat of your heart. Slow when you are sound asleep, fast when you run. A fuzzy feeling when you are happy, a cold and heavy feeling when you are angry or sad.
Even though the emotions are generated by the brain, you feel them mostly in the heart. The heart is life, the core, the figurative home of the soul, the warmth of blood flow. Meditate and feel that warmth pulsing through you. Calmly, quietly.
Boom... boom... boom... boom...

Write about this complex muscle nested in within your ribs. Dip your pen in the red ink that keeps you alive. Metaphorically speaking, of course.

Live, love, write,
