Silly Book Writing Poem by Mwah
Written by Terri Crosby for In Care of Relationships
I’m writing a book, book, book.
In time, you’ll be able to take a look, look, look.
Meanwhile, I flow, flow, flow.
Who knows how this will go, go, go!
Until then, I write, write, write,
Like a pen-holding sprite, sprite, sprite
Perhaps I might, might, might
Produce something to excite, excite, excite!
In any case, I promise you the book will be better than this silly poem!!!
I just wanted you to know that I am indeed writing and have been speaking to a publisher — just had an inspiring follow-up conversation with her yesterday. She gave me some crowd-funding ideas for publishing and I set a writing schedule for myself (although quite a challenge during the Holidays!!)
I’m really excited about these beginning steps. The best thing for me so far, is the process of sitting down to write. Every day is a blank canvas even though I wrote yesterday, and it’s a good thing I welcome a page with nothing on it. I’m appreciative of that!
In writing, “finding one’s voice” and one’s style is also a beautiful thing. As I imagine and write “like me” (not another person’s voice or ideas about what a relationship self-help book should be) the writing feels natural and satisfying and hopefully it will feel that way to you, too.
This is going to be a great year! I’ll keep you posted.
