A Writers Secret World

Updated on February 13, 2014

Even My Friends Don't Understand

You see me write

I often tell you about my stories and plans

You listen but are less than interested

For four years I have been writing seriously

Devoted to my craft

It's a job that comes with no pay

Practicing and thinking of something

Not a hobby anymore

I have moved to the next step

Not easy fighting negative thoughts and working long hours

I dig into my raw knowledge bank

To make another withdrawl

Searching for clues

Looking for my next lead, story or rhyme

I can hear my thoughts and see my dreams

I read, write and practice

Then stop and review and rewrite some more

Three hours a day minimum

I watch as people pass by

All I know is I check the time

Where did the time go ?

I got up early and went to bed late

I made sure I would write

Write my life slowly word for word

Going somewhere to make a real difference

My purpose is deeper

As destiny waits for me

I am a dreamer who sets the world a fire

With my pen and my thoughts

Like something you have never seen before

Leading the way with love and desire

      annart Appreciating other writers is my favorite pastime. I can relate to their struggle and their greatest achievements. I enjoy reading your comments as well as your hubs. Trying to squeeze more reading when ever time allows. Have a happy writing day. Thank you so much.

      It's true that writers are often regarded as a little insane! I don't think people understand the drive of wanting to get all that information and imagination on the page.

      Keep at it! It is worth it, even if it's only for one's self-worth.

      Great subject and good poetry. Ann
