And now I'm thinking about the act of writing itself. The physical things that we do to get words in a computer file or on paper.

I write short stories, articles and novels on the computer because my brain, my visions of the story go too fast for me to use a pen and paper.

But poetry is something different. Pen/pencil and a writing tablet. I write, I cross out, or I copy and rewrite and cross out and go back and...

Fiction comes from the gut and spews out quickly.
Poetry, like love, comes from the heart and like love, takes time to evolve.
