Fossil Poetry


"You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you."

A blog about writers, writing and the pleasure of reading.

"I want to write because I have the urge to excel in one medium of translation and expression of life. I can’t be satisfied with the colossal job of merely living. Oh, no, I must order life in sonnets and sestinas and provide a verbal reflector for my 60-watt lighted head."

— Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

"Write. Start writing today. Start writing right now. Don’t write it right, just write it –and then make it right later. Give yourself the mental freedom to enjoy the process, because the process of writing is a long one. Be wary of “writing rules” and advice. Do it your way."
