"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."

The thing that I'm most in love with is
a coffee stained
slightly ripped
beat, burnt, aged notebook.
And I'd rather sit with this
in a warm bookstore, late at night
Than with a stone-headed teenage boy
In a half empty movie theater
kissing his stale butter lips
and tasting beer
Any day of the week

Do you ever feel like boys aren't worth it? That the only thing you should waste your time with is writing?

Yes and no(replying to author's comments). I don't think that writing is the only thing, but I do feel that boys aren't worth it (like that) a lot. Great job! Ps. Please check out my stuff, I'd appreciate it!
