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.
