*Day 5 of the 15 Habits of Great Writers came out, most unexpectedly, as a poem after “shipping” my idea to a couple of close friends.
I’ve been prepared for this my whole life.
Set apart from the beginning; un-picked.
Never understood; kept in the dark
Scribble-scribble, all-the-while (it felt) for no reason, no reason at all
Wipe the dust of turmoil from my shoulder
Knit the useless desires
