Mos Def I'm Definitely NOT

          This is a rap I wrote a while ago (just playing around, don't worry...You don't have to move to a foreign country, afraid this rhymically-challenged woman fancies herself a rapper).

Times I write good,
Times I write junk...
Times my writing goes places
I didn't 'riginally thunk.

The rhythm, the words
They go hand in hand,
Sweepin' you away
To a fantasyland.

You edit, scratch out,
You worry and fret,
You change some lines...
And then comes the sweat.

But keep on tryin'--
Don't ever stop.
Don't ever think your stuff
Is pure slop,

'Cause a writer's heart is strong and true...
I'm a writer and my name is Sioux.

      We have to continue to nurture our creativity.  We have to develop thick skin yet still embrace constructive criticism.

        Does anyone have any raps about the writing process you'd like to share?
