[Poem a Day] “They Say He Went Mute”

Check out today’s post on Instagram.

There’s this guy I chatted with sometimes, back when I used to work retail. He wrote, and knew I wanted to start, and just told me to write something every day – even if it’s just a line. Make sure to get something down.

Just sort of remembering that this morning got me thinking about how once you’ve started writing – once you’ve made it a part of your day that just happens as naturally as a meal or something – you’re sort of always writing anyway. If you’re not physically getting it down on paper, you’ve absorbing everything and generating lines, consciously or unconsciously, that you’re bound to get down later.

This came from that, I think.
