A tale I heard

Writer, poet, performer, Tim Clare on writing

"Writing takes practice. And if you aren’t turning up and writing and building those creative muscles, you won’t get any better. You can’t learn writing through mistake inhibition. Creativity is, after all, a form of adaptive mistake. You only learn by moving the pen, putting one word after the other, experimenting with different combinations and observing the effects they create.

And writing badly, believe it or not, takes practice. For some of us, writing with the perfectionist brakes off is intermittently terrifying. But it’s liberating too. And the good stuff, this inspiration that artists are always talking about, just pops up out of nowhere."

A tale I saw

Tea by Monkeypoet

A tale I wrote

The vegan looked at the ice cream,
It said: “I’m vegan.”
So the vegan ate it.

The vegan looked at the cake,
It said: “I’m vegan.”
So the vegan ate it.

The vegan looked at the burger,
It said: “I’m vegan.”
So the vegan at it.

The vegan looked at his reflection,
It said: “I’m vegan.”
So the vegan ate himself.
