Writer’s Workshop Blues
It is so exciting and fun.
I get to write a book.
Pen, paper, and an idea are all set to go.
Writing all morning and drawing all afternoon.
Oh, this is harder than I thought.
I want to bang my head against the wall.
“Details, Details, Details!” Mrs. McNabb insists.
“Draw, Draw, Draw!” Mr. Ollie demands.
Oh, I think that I’m going to scream.
Oh, I think that I have the writer’s workshop blues.
Hey, I think I understand.
Details, details, details are what I am seeing.
The illustrations are looking great.
Ms. Mecca reminds me of a cheerleader
as she bounces around the room.
“Yes, you can!” She sings.
My book is coming together.
And, it is better than I could ever think.
Victory is almost here.
Understanding writing is my achievement.
Drawing doesn’t scare me anymore.
And, I have a book to prove it.
