So, You think You Can Write!

a wordsmith

fluent in argument,
disdain, and the king's English

humorous and entertaining

yet, wryness, wit, and whimsey
(adorable little playskool tools that they are)
cannot, in and of themselves,
construct substance

a wordsmith
but as far as being a writer,
we respectfully decline
to offer a bid

that being said,
it's apparent you've been called
but regrettably
not chosen

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
The title and piece are a play on the tv competition show "so, you think you can dance". It is a much too generous (SELF) critique of my writing skills.
Editing stage: 


i'm sure you'd make the finals :)

great intermittent rhyme and alliteration
i especially like the internal rhyme of 'skool' and 'tools' and the 'w' alliteration in
'yet, wryness, wit, and whimsey
(adorable little playskool tools that they are)'

an enjoyable read
love judy xxx

'Each for the joy of the working, and each, in his separate star,
shall draw the Thing as he sees It, for the God of Things as They are.'
(Rudyard Kipling)

A fun look that makes us smile, "Playskool" well they make toys for kids, is that who you meant??? Good advert I would send them the Bill, lol
Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..

And yet we keep on pounding the keyboard lol.........stan
