I write in the evening normally, but it varies. Best thing to do is carry a notebook around with you 24/7 so even if you're on the bus and you get inspiration it won't go to waste! That means hide a notebook under your pillow too! :)

I try and clear my head and then think of a topic that I feel strongly about. Sometimes I don't even need to do that, if something happened that mady me happy, angry or depressed all I need is a computer or pen and paper. I also read other poems that might give me insperation. I also find that talking to people if they have a problem, I can write about it for them.
I hope this helps you alot,
best wishes from Marissa.

No rituals in my case. Also, I found that I couldn't write poems that had to follow the specific teachings of formal poetry. Anyone who loves to write can be a 'poet' in his or her own right. What I find useful is to keep a pen/pencil and notepad on hand wherever I go. You never know when and what will inspire you. Also, it's good to always keep a pen and notebook on your nightstand. Some of my best writing flows out just before I drift off to sleep, or after I've woken up (especially after a memorable dream) .

The only rule of writing is just let it flow.

It may sound odd - but I make it a point to listen to some good music before inkning my pen to paper...regards, n.d.

i only write at night, that seems to help me and then i sit at my desk with my favorite pen(how lame!) and just let the ideas pour onto the page.
