Ask A Writer

Writing is a curse
Don’t believe me?
Just ask a writer.

Ask the writer who sits up all night,
The one who questions their words
The words they bring up from their soul
only to wonder if anyone will listen.

Ask the writer who researches for hours
Does a horse really jump this way?
How does a castle drawbridge work?
What’s the name of a plant found in the desert?

Ask the writer who spends hours
And nights
And days
All writing, and writing and worrying and wondering
And yet they produce noting they like so they start over

Writing is a curse but also a blessing
Don’t believe me?
Just ask a writer.
