That Moment When…

That moment when working on finishing up your novel you realize that novels aren’t just something ‘they’ or ‘other people’ do, but YOU do, too.
The mild panic.
The realization hits you and hides, as if to protect you from freaking out;
It comes in waves.

I have placed 4th in Ve’ahavta’s Creative Writing Contest… There’s prize money involved!

More information on this wonderful organization can be found here.

I will be reading the poem as part of the Words from the Street 15th Annual Awards Ceremony!
