W is for Writer

We writers are strange, there’s no denying
We are wacky and weird without even trying,
We live in a world of our own creation
Dreaming up stories from our imagination,
We’re not in it for the money or for the fame
Though a little would be nice, just the same,
Writer’s block is a deadly curse
Writing crap is even worse,
Being a writer can be lonely and tough
We often feel we’re not good enough,
But when we write some shining prose
Our writing shimmers, sparkles and glows,
It’s what being a writer is all about
And helps sustain us through the drought.

  2. Working with groups helps so much...but at the end of the day each of us must find the inspiration within.

  3. Speak for yourself. I'm in it for the money and fame. ;)


  4. This is awesome. I think we have all went through this at one time or another.


  5. We are a strange breed aren't we. And it is such a feeling of pride when we write something beautiful!

  6. Sometimes writing crap is therapeutic. Nice one.

    1. I agree, Suzy. A good crap writing session does help sometimes.

  7. Writing crap is bad, but at least it's a starting point :) You can't edit what's not on the page!
