If you're not having fun doing this,
have fun doing this!
Don't be writing your heart out,
get beat down,
snarled at,
criticized daily,
slangs throwed through message,
leaving you in passage.

Passage your way on out of here,
forget all this writing fear.
I beat these keys evey day for fun,
lets see now,
everything has risk,
When I was drinking some 20 years back,
dodging the police,
wrecking cars,
fighting sometimes,
other small little crimes.

Then there was the casino,
taking some of my money,
sure was fun,
but now I'm done.

Sitting in the bar drinking,
sometimes was fun,
for a long time this went on,
now it's gone.

Back to beating these keys into words,
which sometimes fly away like birds.
Some words throwed my way,
could mess up someones day,
but not my play.

The risk of having fun writing,
might lead to a little expression fighting.
But that's it!
A lot safer than driving drunk,
and others things that stunk.

Have some fun doing this,
not making any money.
Word game,
fun game.
Thinking of stupid poems,
causing writing storms.

By the time I get some words in ink,
I don't even want to think.
Hours go by,
Because I'm having fun,
reading and writing,
sometimes exciting,
other times deep trouble,
so go ahead and burst my bubble.


I still want stop.

I'm secure with myself.

Maybe not my writing!

But it's still exciting.

Loosen up,

have some fun!

That is the only way to go, the fun part, some of us try to SAY too damn much and get carried away with our "message." Good words to live by, Grady.

Great advice...Grady!
Until I began writing "just for the fun of it," a few years back,
nothing I produced ever was seen in print. Most of it was garbage (in My book, anyway), and then...when I "let go," minor miracles happened.
I got read. I got published. I felt fulfilled.
And criticism could now be taken seriously, or with a grain of salt.
Just keep having fun, Grady. That's what our writing is all about.
