How to Write

Sometimes what I write – it can sparkle, or it can flop.

Sometimes an ellipsis seems more like a full stop.

I write for days on end when my brain just won’t shut up,

then I pause for four or five months or so – long enough to fill my cup.

“That’s not doing it properly!”

“A true writer writes every day!”

“You cannot be a writer and just shut yourself away!”

“What have you published? Not a thing – why would bother then?”

You can always tell by what they say if they’ve ever loved a pen.
