IMAGINE…You’re A Writer

Recently, writerly colleagues and I have been discussing the unique way in which our industry works…and the fact that writers need  more than talent. We need to have patience, determination and a passion bordering on obsession for what we do.

When we were joking around, my good friend and crit buddy, Alison Reynolds came up with the line, “You may say I’m a realist” and this inspired the following poem. I hope you enjoy it and I apologise in advance to fans of John Lennon.
