Writing poems is a lot like snapping pictures



Not every picture is a winner. But you keep taking them anyway, hoping that one of these days, you’ll get something really good.

And that’s how it is with writing. You know you’re writing a lot of stuff that isn’t great. But you keep doing it anyway, hoping that one of these days, you’ll figure out how to say it just right.
