I am a chronic rhymer when it comes to poetry, which often disqualifies me from competitions and magazines. They think rhyming is too contrived or cheesy. For me rhyming comes easily as I get caught up in a rhythm in my head. This is often helped by listening to Ludovico Einaudi tracks. The fact that his albums are purely instrumental means I don’t get distracted by words and can just flow along with the music. Einaudi’s music is also hugely inspirational, with a lot of mood to it.
But I digress as usual. I am excited to see a competition specifically for rhyming poetry, so I am definitely going to enter it. Below is a link to the competition site so you can read the rules and give it a go as well!
