Writerly Thinz: Words Of The Day


If you write a hundred short stories and they’re all bad, that doesn’t mean you’ve failed. You fail only if you stop writing. I’ve written about 2,000 short stories; I’ve only published about 300 and I feel I’m still learning. Any man who keeps working is not a failure. He may not be a great writer, but if he applies the old-fashioned virtues of hard, constant labor, he’ll eventually make some kind of career for himself as a writer. – Ray Bradbury

Like a vampire facing execution

I am tied to my fate

And placed in the sun

To melt away

For the flood of my rage

To wash my ashes away


I stand here alone

On the brink of existence

Waiting patiently

For my departed spirit

That crawled away

To return with the key

To unlock the vortex

That will lead me home

And release me

From this soulful moan
