if only it were that easy, you know...ha...it is good to tell our story though...so that others may edit...and perhaps through that, I save them from similar.
very cool... as long as we can edit there's still hope...my life's an endless line of edits...smiles
This is cool.(love the third line).
Yes - online we pretend our fiction is our reality.
Yeah, love it. I write to edit. Editing actually is kinda fun once you get the hang of it!
We are all so flawed and somehow that adds to the beauty of the whole thing--texture, color.
I think we all edit our stories. We just have to remember what our edits were!
if only... ugh, our lives are written in stone...
Maybe that edit works a little bit on the way.. though I guess edit is more like veneer...
Ah yes, editing. I rarely use it. I enjoy the mistakes because they make a poem all that much more interesting. Just like in life we make mistakes and want to fix them, but sometimes it is better to just learn from the mistake and not do it again.
Speaking of editing, you have given us both eight Word, & seven Word forms; which is cool, but it's like have already cut the excess from 10, making me think the third stanza would have been six Word; might have been fun to work stanza down to one word.
I like Glenn's suggestion..
I spent much of 2014 editing poems for my poetry book. Definitely different than writing. Worthwhile, though. Peace, Linda
Witty and profound at the same time.
I am not sure my editing makes my flaws less so sadly. Interesting ten-word!
Isn't that the truth!
I guess it happens even when we tell our own story to ourselves. The first draft gets fine tuned… We sound clearer on the second try.
Ah, but our true story truly lies in the flaws, does it not? Perfection is over-rated! Nice little "thinking" piece.
You have so much power showing in few words. I like your style.
The way I write, I get lots of chances to edit.
We are what we are, tragically flawed or otherwise. Beautifully penned!
Ha ha! Love this.
No one can strip a poem to its essence as skilfully and powerfully as you. This one zings, MZ.
Super clever, MZ. Agree with Bri--if only-- one can make the story funny at least, rather than so tragic! Thanks much. k. (http://manicddaily.wordpress.com)
I think you successfully described my existence as well! Loved this.
Logical progression it is MZ! Effectively stated!Hank
this is stunning, MZ! i love all of your poetry, but your short verse is often the most powerful i've ever read.♥
