Reflecting on A Year in Writing*

 

Should old manuscripts be forgot

And never brought to light?

Should old manuscripts be forgot

And WIPs we didn’t write?

 

For Works-In-Progress, do I mean?

For Works-In-Progress, yes!

We’ll need some Scrivener or MS Word

For novels that weren’t the best.

 

We have worn pathways in our floors

And torn every hair out

But we have poured our hearts into

Our books that caused us doubt.

 

And surely we’ll pay to be in print

With money, blood, or sanity!

And we’ll take every crumb of encouragement

To think our work’s not a calamity.**

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

 

*NOTE: I make no claims to be a poet OR a songwriter.

**Hey, you try rhyming with sanity!
