The Writing Game

are at
times hard to
capture into
one good piece that will
be appreciated.
It is a constant struggle
to please yourself, yet please someone
who would buy what you write. It's like your
soul and spirit takes a negative hit.

    Congratulations on your win Brandee, i liked the way u've expressed a writer's /poet's constant / troubling fear everytime he makes up his mind to write something new.."who will read? /who will buy? awww it's an adrenaline rush. And yes, it's a negative hit leading to creation at the end and that suffices the hunger, leaving one parched as ever for more...thanks for your gracious remarks on celestial.....God bless.
