MY THOUGHTS ON WRITING
TO WRITE IS DIVINE
TO EDIT IS BLISS - AND NECESSARY
NOBODY GETS IT RIGHT FIRST GO!
Well written Stories have many layers
It’s easy to tell which are the true stayers
They stay in your mind
And I think you’ll find
There are ready markets, even the payers
For those writers fed up with critics:-
The trouble with being a writer
Is folk may think you’re a right blighter
You’re too clever by half
Or your tales make them barf
Ignore it, the burden gets lighter.
Wendy Cope and the Poet Laureate have nothing to worry about as far as their jobs are concerned!
To read is sublime
To write is divine
To edit and improve is bliss
To ever get published is an uphill slog.
