The Practice of Writing

To look at things a certain way
Today has been success
The notebook now has 3 ideas
Another time to press

First, couldn’t find the picture, right
Then could not find my voice
Another piece forgot in sleep
I’ll have to make a choice

I said I’d publish every day
I’m not quite there half-way 
Will I make it? I can’t say
I just won’t quit today

– made me do it! With the 31 day writing challenge! Head on over and check it out, it’s called Slice of Life–

  1. Love your voice. Of course you’ll make it. And in style! For the record: I hate when I have a wonderful idea just percolating as I fall asleep that’s totally wiped clear of my memory bank by morning’s waking. Always a bummer! ❤

  2. Great poem! This was me today, as well! I started a couple of pieces, though I didn’t end up with a poem instead. I usually find the middle of the month to be challenging.
    Love especially the piece forgotten in sleep! Totally relate!
