    A Poetry Lesson by R. RenĂ©e Bembry

TIP Number 1 - If you think of rhymes that may be useful in your poem before you are ready to use the rhymes, write them on the top or on the side of your paper. I like to do this because (1) sometimes the spare rhyming words give me ideas, and (2) sometimes when I think of spare rhymes and decide to use them at some point, I forget what they were. Writing them somewhere on the paper keeps me in touch with them.

TIP Number 2 - While you're rewriting your poem, new ideas may pop into your head. If these new ideas go well with your poem, and especially if they will improve it, go ahead and make the changes. It's common practice for authors to write their poems over and over again. This is a natural part of the creative process. Your work will improve only when you go through this process. So, keep in mind, rewriting is a good thing!
