"You know you’re a writer if your friend tells you a heartbreaking story and your first reaction is – wow, that would make an incredible plot for a novel. You know you’re a smart writer if you manage to keep that reaction to yourself."

I dance with my pen
cross the page of my book
singing the words like no one
My pen is my instrument
I orchestrate the music
that is a song of poetry
I paint words of silence
my pen is my brush
and I create.

I go to a school for the arts and a lot of people think that writing is not an art. However I feel that it is just as much an art as everything else and I express that here with this poem.

This is really nice. I totally agree with you, writing is an art, it's more than that to me, it's a way of expression and a way of dealing with things, it's a coping stratagey when you need it and at the same time, it's fun! I can't wait to read more of your writing!

I enjoy this and how you describe writing and how you compare it to dancing,singing, and painting or that the pen is your "instrument." I think that writing is an art as much as painting and music.

This is beautiful! I love how you compare writing to painting and singing, it works really well. I think you might want to work on the wording in the first three lines, but other than that, it's amazing! And I totally agree with you- writing is an art!
