The spark works its way out while you’re writing your craft
It’s easier to edit than writing the first draft
Write it so you can read it and not too sloppy
When you’re typing it, you’ll want a clean copy
Don’t listen to me, do it how it works for you
What’s important is how it reads when you are through
I’ve played this out so I’m on my merry way
Now I guess I’ll edit it on some sunny day

Enjoyed this! Nice work.
I thank you Michael. I enjoyed some of your work as well.
I like this too, Michael.
There’s always pain involved in writing the first draft, I agree. Editing, poetry editing, is the fun part.
Prose? I hate editing that! lol
Nice chuckle here. I love rewriting … for me the rewrite is the write … if that makes any sense.
Thanks and it makes perfect sense.
