Ode to Chapter 3

Oh Chapter Three, how I longed for thee
while mired in the edits of one and two,
yet now you obstinately refuse
to shape to my will, stubbornly
fighting every turn of phrase.

Oh dear Chapter Four,
I wish to be stuck within
your obliging pages, longing
for the ease of words
I know will come.

Poetry! I love it! Let it be an inspiration to you to finish off that pesky chapter three.

and chapter twenty two - I cannot wait for you!

Angie said...

Kristen, I guess I'm a poet and didn't know it! Watch out ;) Seriously need to finish this stupid chapter though.

Rebecca, oh dear, does chapter twenty two have you down? Luckily I only have 15 total, though, er, that makes them each really long...woo and hoo!

This poem is the story of my life...but you already know that, don't you? Great blog, by the way.

Thanks for stopping by, Cathy. Yeah, I think this is a common struggle.
