Poetry Friday: Story by Nayyirah Waheed

Current Mood: artistic
Current Song: Why You Always Here by Katy B

remember,
you were a writer
before
you ever
put
pen to paper.
just because you were not writing
externally
does not mean you were not writing
internally.

I just finished a book (fiction) about one experience of World War II, and it centered on stories as combatants to all the fears and challenges people faced. Each may not have been writers but were writing, just as your shared words say, too. Love it! And thanks!

Primary sources are the best sources.

Oh, I do so much writing in my head--now if I could just sit down to write more of it!

Re: writer

I write a lot in my head, too. It's difficult, at times, to dedicate time to sit down and type it up, but it's worth it!
