Sample Excerpt:

 

 

Letís try and write a book, I said. ††††††
Must be something in a dream, ††††††††††
the thought woke me while in bed. ††††
First get up for coffee and cream. ††††††
†††††††††††† Then sat I down with pen and ink,†††††† ††††††††††††
cogitating all the while,††††††††††† ††††††††††††
thinking about the colour of zinc.†††††††
My thoughts did wander for a mile. †††
The coffee cold, the inkwell full, †††††††
and all the day I found no way,†††††††††††
my cogitating turned out bull, ††††††††††††
and now the morning turned to day. ††
†††††††††††† To write a book, Iíll think it over, ††††† ††††††††††††

a writerís life is not all clover.
