This year, I’ve decided to follow the advice of Ray Bradbury and feed myself on a diet of words.
Just write every day of your life. Read intensely. Then see what happens. Most of my friends who are put on that diet have very pleasant careers.
A Diet Of Words
A diet of words
That’s what Ray Bradbury prescribes.
I’ve been trying it out for the last few weeks
And it works well
Devouring the words
Enjoying the writing of others
And then I write
Letting my words flow
Stilling that inner critic
Not trying too hard
Not writing to impress
But writing from the heart
I’ve realized how easy that can be
To let the words that have been lingering
In the corners of your mind
See the light of day
To let the world know what I think
How I feel, what I believe in
