A Written Return That Will Churn!

This rhyme came due but I can't show you. Why is that? Just because where I'm at. This rhyme came due but I can't show you. It was another one. Damn, doesn't want to be spun.

Was that a hole?
Damn, not a goal.
Can't have that.
It has to scat.

Hole is fixed.
It has been nixed.
But that word doesn't work.
It just isn't a perk.

Swap out the word.
No longer absurd.
Another hole there.
Not good to have a spare.

Hole's been plugged.
Things aren't bugged.
It goes out straight.
It can leave the gate.

Whoops, a rhyming dog.
That lands us in a bog.
We can't have that.
Need a rewrite, stat.

Start all over.
Get rid of the rover.
He has quite the stink.
That could bring one to the brink.

Have to change that.
From dog to cat.
Look another hole.
Three more take stroll.

Words don't fit.
Need to fix that shit.
It's repeat land.
Those words take a stand.

Repeat the fix.
Repeats to nix.
Repeats done.
Repeated a ton.

Fixed with a cat.
How about that?
Whoops, the cat doesn't rhyme.
Have to rewrite one more time.

Ever get into rewrite land? Thankfully no rhymes get out of hand. I can do those in my sleep. But rewrites can run deep. Plot holes galore or something doesn't work and needs an encore. All kinds of reasons for them to come to pass. It's good that no one can rewrite my little rhyming ass.

Enjoy your winter, smash a printer.

      Stumbled in but slow

      But still made it!

  3. Spend your time on a rewrite
    Print it out on a paper kite
    Fly it high above the trees
    Watch it float on a summer breeze

  7. Don't rewrite because I don't write to begin with
    keep things simple here at my sea
    then don't have the stress of rewrites
    and I am as happy as can be

  8. on the blog i've used pictures more than once. Deadline due or something like that, and I didn't have time to search or take new ones before I had to leave the house. I've probably repeated myself here and there too. It happens. :) I don't write for a living though, so none of that here. I'm a high school teacher now though, so I repeat myself several times a day for each class. By the end of the day, it's coming from memory only. ;)

  9. I rewrite quite a bit. I write posts and schedule them ahead of time and check them right before they post. I end up rewriting some of them because they don't sound right.

  20. I rewrite all the time. It's the bane of my existence, because I can't resist it. I think rewriting makes my writing better, but it also makes writing a maddeningly slow process. I find when I'm writing something challenging, rewriting, revising, and editing help me clarify my thinking and discover what I'm really trying to say. It would be so much easier if I could just make and outline and stick to it, but that's never worked for me. Have a good one, my friend!
