I love this! You actually made me laugh, which may not have been your intent :), but I guess I just didn't expect such a fabulous, simple poem to so perfectly encompass one of my favorite parts of writing. :) This is beautifully written; so glad I found it.

Hmmm...I'll debate whether I will reveal my pen-names. J.K. Rowling had fun writing as Robert Galbratih. But I do also want you to read my work, assuming I write. One thing's for sure: I'll probably write as Mckay. With no first name. And you tell me if you ever write with a pen-name in the future too. ^u^

It is better to write for yourself and have no audience than write for your audience and have no self.

i honestly really really love this. the message is clear but somewhat mysterious at the same time!

Mckay, you're really too kind. Seriously. Wow. Thank you! :D Well, let me know what future pseudonyms you use when you get older, because I'd definitely read whatever you write! ^_^

As a writer, with a psuedonym, I love this poem. I don't think I will ever use my real name later on. I think I'll still with Mckay, if I do become a writer when I'm older. (Maybe even use more, like J.K Rowling.) Fantastic wording and title. Plausible and original similes that make the imagery life-like. And the emotion is sassy. Awesome-sauce, Krasota. And congrats, my friend, on the editors' chioce. You so deserve it, and many more.
