Love this poem. It has a ring of familiarity! :-)

Did you do your 15 today? If so, I am about to join you. If not, want to join me?

Love you,

Laura Biering

It seems I am having trouble spelling my own name. I vow that my lack of spelling / typing ability will not keep me from writing.

A question: I think you write on your computer. What do you say about those of us who write better - more authentically - by hand? And then have to transfer it to another doc on the computer? Any suggestions?

Thank you for commenting!

1. Yes, the poem should have a ring of familiarity as I wrote it our second day at the farm. :) It's sort of (but not completely) a continuation of my first poem (ever): http://www.writewellme.com/2011/02/dark-places-of-the-soul.html.

2. As far as handwriting vs. computer... I find that when I'm creating, brainstorming, etc... that needs to be done by hand. I used to do all my writing by hand, but after a while, it was just too slow. Now, when I'm actually writing sentences, I type on the computer because my fingers can almost keep up with my brain. By hand, no way. For you, I'd find a way to make it work. If you already know you create/write better by hand, then absolutely do that. And then retype (which might be a form of editing). It might not seem efficient, but you're embracing the process that works for you.
