Writer Woman's Prerogative...

One prerogative of a woman is to change her mind,
And I change mine constantly,
I try new things, new ways, ponder new ideas and then
I do them, once I have decided it works for me,
One of my other prerogatives is to keep my mouth shut about what I’m doing,
It irks many in my life,
People seem to have the overwhelming need to know,
And I have this belief system that I tell people what they need to know,On a need to know basis,
I think back to three years ago, when I was writing fervently,
Didn’t know what I wanted to write,
My goal at that time was to be a short story writer,
Maybe publish some shorts in different magazines,
Freelance a bit,
I did that for a while, had a few things published,
But all the while I was working on a novel,
Not talking about it to a living soul,
I was praying about it and talking to myself, a lot but real quiet,
Stunned quite a few people when I actually showed them an actual book,
In fact that is what people would say,
‘Oh my God, it’s a real book…”
I then went through this transformation of what I was going to write,
That was also quite quiet, until I was ready to tell folks,
I am once again undergoing a Sea Change,
Deciding how I want to get my work out there and through what means,
It is like music playing in my head,
And once it has been spoken, and the decisions made,
I will then spring it on people,
I have to often say,
I’m not trying to be secretive,
But I am more about a fait accompli,
When I say I’m going to do a thing,
I want it to be a done thing,
Being about it,
Not just talking about it,
And when questioned, I love saying,
That’s a Writer Woman’s Prerogative!

Love and Blessings,
