this business of art

For the past three weeks, I have been working on a commission. It has been hard. The words have not come to me easily, and when they have come, they have not wanted to bring any feeling with them. I sent off the latest draft to my customer tonight with a heavy head. The poem is good, but it is not all I want it to be.


  1. I understand how you feel. When I was writing my zine I am printing on friday, I found the three poems in there, that two of them were not easy to come. I am not always able to come up with the words myself and am only able when I am feeling a very strong emotion. Then I can write and it sounds good. Well I think it does anyway. I hope it goes well :-)

  2. Thank you. Sometimes it seems so silly, to put so much work and so many hours into a piece of writing that only needs 30 seconds of inspired scribbling.


Speak your piece.
