Join the circus...

"Writing free verse 
is my chance to join the circus!  
I walk across a tightrope, 
high off the ground.  
Carefully, I put 
one foot in front of the other -- 
completely absorbed by the going, 
never quite knowing 
where the rope will end." 

~ Bobbi Katz, 
in The Place My Words are Looking For

I hadn't thought about writing as walking on a metaphorical tightrope before, but after reading this quote, I have to agree with Katz.  (And in my opinion, it applies to other writing, too, not just free verse.)  Join the circus: Write!
