Today I have a piece up at Fresh Fiction about the difficulty of taking feedback on your writing. I’m giving away a book in the comments! And in honor of that, here’s a poem by Dorothy Parker. We writers have our priorities, don’t we?
by Dorothy Parker
Say my love is easy had,
Say I’m bitten raw with pride,
Say I am too often sad —
Still behold me at your side.
Say I’m neither brave nor young,
Say I woo and coddle care,
Say the devil touched my tongue —
Still you have my heart to wear.
But say my verses do not scan,
And I get me another man!
