Writing This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   A quick scratch of a pencil

Just the movement of a pen

Constantly bearing down

on a helpless piece of paper.



No, that's not what writing is.

Writing is ideas

that have pressed through one's mind;

A fantasy developed by imagination.

Someone's thoughts and feelings,

Made into a masterpiece,

By writing.
