I once tried to write a poem. I was reading a lot of poetry at the time and it seemed like a good idea. It was terrible. I have read it to exactly one person and she picked out one line and said, "That one's not so bad". She was wrong though, it was so bad, it IS so bad. Every time I read it I am embarrassed by the sheer badness of it but yet, it makes me smile. It makes me smile that I tried. It makes me smile that I completed it. So now I think I should try to complete more things. That's probably a good general rule anyway.

Anyone who has happened  upon my long lost blog from years back knows I started this whole thing to keep my fingers busy while not smoking. It didn't go so well. Eventually I picked up the cigs but kept writing anyway. Well, I need to quit again, this time for real. Any tips?
