A little suffering
A word processor
A quiet room
Classical music
Confidence
And a rebellious spirit

Writing must have power behind it

Does your writing command attention?
Like a voice
of warning
chanting 
magic
declaring
these words must be read

Without this power
readers should stop reading

Power is everything 

If you can give power to words
like a magician 
Suddenly, your success 
or a lack of it
does not matter

Readers are hypnotized by words
unable to look away
You have power over them
You are a writer

Writing
is like courting a woman
You cannot force 
love

Writers must have ambition
but it cannot drive them to write

Once you start thinking 
about word counts,
goals,
and books
Inspiration will leave you

Like a woman

When you date for 
Marriage
Sex
Or Money

She will sense your insincerity
and pull away

You must give your attention 
to the craft of writing

Like a good seduction

Your love
will get you in bed
with words and women
every time.
