writing advice

don't sell yourself short, kiddo:
those smears across your screen
when you write:
blood from your heart,
and sweat from your soul;
the tears are bonus.

let to flowing like it wants to,
that head of yours contains a whole lot;
trust me on this:
I have seen great, good, okay, and lousy
over the past 40 years;
and you are good, and maybe even great.

remember, it's not bad when
the voices start talking back to you --
it's bad when they stop.
