Spoken word refers to an oral poetic performance art that is based mainly on the poetic as well as the performer's aesthetic qualities. It is a late 20th century continuation of an ancient oral artistic tradition that focuses on the aesthetics of recitation and word play , such as the performer's live intonation and voice inflection. Spoken word is a "catchall" term that includes any kind of poetry recited aloud, including poetry readings, poetry slams , jazz poetry , and hip hop music , and can include comedy routines and prose monologues. Spoken word has existed for many years. Long before writing, through a cycle of practicing, listening and memorizing, each language drew on its resources of sound structure for aural patterns that made spoken poetry very different from ordinary discourse and easier to commit to memory.

Although it might sound foolish to some, the fear of the blank page is a horrible one that makes writers everywhere leave their pens untouched. Unfortunately, the only way to curb this fear of writing is to write. This works really well in terms of loosening your tongue, so to speak.

Masterpiece Generator refers to a set of text generator tools created by Aardgo.
