And that makes you special.
You’ve got the guts to dig yourself like a pumpkin. Dig out your insides, and throw them – splat – onto a newspaper. And then, using your craft, you carve a face into the shell that’s left – a scream or smile for those that view your work.
Don’t forget to put a candle inside what’s left. Let your glow shine in the eyes of the reader.
Because you, my friend, are a writer. Hollow and screaming, you spill your insides for the pleasure of others.
