from Writing Down the Bones

by Natalie Goldberg

Go Further

Push yourself beyond when you think you are done with what you have to say. Go a little further. Sometimes when you think you are done, it is just the edge of beginning. Probably that's why we decide we're done. It's getting too scary. We are touching down onto something real. It is beyond the point when you think you are done that often something strong comes out.

Throwing some words together doesnt make it a poem. Rating: crap.

Dear Crap Blog Detective,
This is not meant to be a poem. This is a quote from quite a beautiful book. You know, a book? Maybe stop unconstructively criticising people online and go read one.
My rating on your blog detecting: crap.
