Writer's discovery


I cannot write novels, it's too hard.
I will try chapters instead, yes, that would work!
Oh, chapters hurt. They evade me like fish!
Oh, I know! Paragraphs! Yes, lovely!
No, paragraphs leave me in a vertigo.
Yes, yes! Sentences, now that's surely to work!
Sniff...sentences are too long.
Words! Now just words ought to work!
Yes, words are easy!

With God's help, they'll prosper into sentences!
Oh, don't sentences make paragraphs?
Paragraphs make up chapters!
Chapter create novels!
Maybe it's not as hard as I thought....
"Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible." -Saint Francis
