Boats Against the Current

I look at the green dot
Sitting by your name
I think about the day you’ve had
I think about talking to you about it

But then I think
I’ll just be a bother
So I stare at the green
And feel as Jay Gatsby did
Looking at that green light
Off in the distance
Marking a place
I’ll never be
A place
I’ll never sail to

  1. First of all I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I’ve had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
    out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips?
    Many thanks!

    • Thanks! I don’t clear my mind at all actually. I find the one emotion that is most predominant in my swirling chaos of a mind and focus on it. And I just write. I don’t really think too hard about it. Writing itself shouldn’t require too much thinking, it’s the editing process in which you should be applying some sort of logical schema to it. I hope that helps.
