This is What Makes You a Writer

This is for all the times that you stubbornly wrote tired, half-drunk, drunk at work in-between doing other things beyond frustrated because you haven’t had a clear day just for writing in months and it was always rush this rush that looking at the clock for compassion where there was none writing on the backs […]

Dreams are For You and For You Only
