NO NICE DAYS (ON WRITING EVERY DAY)

No Nice Days
In memory of Raymond Carver
 
There are no nice days –
there are days
that you write
and days that you don’t.
The first is gravy,
as another writer
once said, and the latter—
you may as well be dead.

Do you think I was having a 'nice day' writing -- when I wrote this?  Why in memory of Raymond Carver?  He was a groundbreaking short story writer, and a pretty good poet -- he wrote a poem entitled, "Gravy," which has stayed with me all my days.  Raymond Carver was also a wonderful teacher -- I was in his creative writing class at Syracuse University.  So, have a nice day, and if you are a writer, write.
