Writing Consumes Me

Today is day 22 of the month long writing challenge sponsored by Two Writing Teachers.  The month is flying by!


Writing Consumes Me

2am
Topics swirl around my head
Nature?
School?
Friends?
Or family?

Sigh... Drift back to sleep

4 am
Format needs to be considered
Poem?
Narrative?
Photo essay?

Sigh... Drift back to sleep

5:30am
Alarm awakens me from my slumber
Type it!
Read it!
Post it!

Yes!


I AM an early morning slicer!

  1. Your poem describes the writing process so well Sometimes the HOW we will write takes the longest time. This is a great one to share with students to prove how important planning is... except that it's costing you sleep

  2. You have entered the Twilight (or is it the Wri-night) Zone... It's tough sometimes to be a writer. Excellent description of what goes on some nights!
    Hope you sleep tonight!
