Don’t kid yourself


Carve-YourselfWriting is an onerous task. It’s not easy. If it was as simple as folks believe, everyone would do it. The reason they don’t is because it’s hard.

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.
