Every “realistic” short story I write is a betrayal. Perversely, the short stories which seem to engage most readers are indeed these more — forgive me — realistic ones.
The poet discussion the exhilaration of exploration, the tension of creation, and one’s readiness to engage with content that is within.
The writer thinks about intention, chronological order and connection to a story.
Writing the poem changes me, and I welcome that. I don’t see that as a betrayal of myself or the work, but more of an evolution.
“Editing is part of any serious writer’s journey. We all need eyes other than our own on our material, even if it’s scary to put your soul on paper and hand it over.”
