Write ten bad poems.

Write one hundred
bad poems.

Write profoundly.

Write and drink.

Keep a notebook with you,
write in public
and make sure that others
know that you are, in fact,
writing.

Write a love poem,
then throw it away
because all the good ones
have already been read.

Ignore advice,
write about the decision
instead of the feeling.

Write one sentence
-make indents,
say to yourself that
this is it, THIS is IT.

Then delete,
and tell yourself that again.
I don't know what to say. Written quickly, would like to hear the good and bad

This is like giving me advice.
But it's called 'ignore advice,'
but this advice is so good to me,
that I can not simply ignore it.
I must take this in and apply it.
This is amazing,
this is just SIMPLY AMAZING.
Wait no, BEYOND AMAZING.
I love this, I love this so much.
Wow, you just made me think differently.
Thank you(:

:) This is actually really good advice, lol. Not to mention the fact that it's well-written. I like it.

As a poem, I'm not sure how to improve this one, as advise, I don't think it needs improving. Actually, I'm not sure there really is anything to fix.
The coda (is that the right word? maybe it's not), the two line verse at the end (oh, couplet), is a good ...I'm going to call it an ending twist. It takes the previous advice and twists it on its head without really removing the intention of the poem. ...That was a really obtuse way of saying what I'm trying to say. :( Ok, You have your ignore advice verses about going your own way, you instruct a writer to get really deep down in his or her writing and get really excited and declare "This is it" like the writer found the best thing ever. Then the ending couplet turns that inspiration on its head by telling the writer to just scrap everything he or she just worked so hard on. It works well, especially because sometimes that really is necessary.
