I have been told that writing every day can help you get better and I have tried to get into the habit of writing each day. But it has been hard to do, depending on what else is going on each day. The last few days I have been writing different types of poetry to get some practice in that rare (there are still more types I want to try). Some seemed hard when looking at it, but I did each one the best I could. Learning to do fixed types of poems has been challenging. But as I was working on this for the last few days, I got worried I'd forget how to write stories, since that is what I have been working on primarily. It's been a while since I last worked on my sequel and have not yet begun to read my first book. I have since gotten more feedback on that one and am waiting to see if another person I sent it to will give some feedback as well (he hasn't had time to get to it, the last time I asked him).
But I guess I won't forget how to write a novel or short story. Writing poetry had been fun and learning to do different kinds has been a challenge, as I've said. I am more used to writing free-verse, non-rhyming poems so, I think it is good to experiment with other kinds. I also like writing both, so I think it's best to do a little of each, and see how you do with each.
