Durso’s 6 Advices for Writers: “don’t pay too much attention to what people say about your work….”

Don’t Miss This Great Advice!!!

Art of Quotation

“What advice would you offer young writers?” – JD DeHart

“Ah, advice.

[1] Well first off, don’t pay too much attention to what people say about your work.

[2] Just keep plugging along trying to find your own voice,

[3] keep reading and

[4] don’t be concerned with trying to emulate other writers but let them feed your imagination and open you up to other ways of doing things.

[5] And don’t be always looking for inspiration. It will come when it comes, but

[6] just develop the discipline you will need to get the work done because in the final analysis it’s the discipline that will carry you through to the end.”  Source

Beautiful Uppercut – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Beautiful Uppercut

Some things just aren’t right,
we were talking about slogans,
we were talking about plight,
but we were polarity,
binary to a tee,
I could see his humanity,
I could beg to differ,
on this pleasant cliff of pontification,
suffered tolerably over a beer.
But when he blamed the victims,
that’s when I hit him,
and my words curled in a beautiful uppercut,
that knocked the wind out of his
sails of ignorance.
Some things just aren’t right,
and the violence of ignorance,
is intolerable,
and, when he confessed,
that’s when I bought him a beer.
