May 22 - "Writing isn't. . ."
by Jason Wardell
Writing isn't magic,
Suspend your disbelief
and I'll pull a sonnet
out of my hat.
Writing isn't divine communion,
it's human communion.
It's a group
and some people
Writing isn't sculpting,
mounds of clay
out of clay
and naming them
Author's Note: 1:16 pm. No. It's not.

Wow Wiley, wow. I think alot of people need to read this, and more importantly understand it. this is the true definition of writing and being a writer.

You're hysterical. The second stanza in particular.

I love the tone and your clever word play in this all wrapped up with that last stanza -- the whole thing makes me smile and nod in agreement - you put this thing into words well!

Here your words ring true in a nice neat package. Fine work Wiley. --bf
