I love the analogy! I don’t think it’s weird — it does feel like that. Yes, it’s definitely a process rather than just a product even though readers only see the product. That’s why it’s so cool to talk about the process, especially in a lovely poem like this. Sometimes it even feels like the poem is writing itself in a way, like it has its own consciousness and I’m just a conduit through which it travels — that’s when I feel REALLY inspired and I love those moments. That’s even weirder! haha

Like what you read? Give Jackie Ann a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
