How Are Poetry and Prose Different?

When Margaret started writing, it was open season for her

Nobody was there to tell her what to do; there were no writing schools. She wrote both poetry and prose

Novels are 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration. Writing novels is work, you have to put in the hours

For poetry, it’s the opposite poets get caught in the moment of inspiration. Poetry is more likely written on the fly. 

Poetry comes from the part that is linked to the patterning of music and mathematics.

Novels come from the part that is associated with narrative and telling stories. Epic poetry is similar to novels, unlike lyric poetry.
