To be the Poet

To Be The Poet by Maxine Hong Kingston

This short, simple memoir-of-sorts is refreshing to read. Kingston is best known as a writer, not a poet and her she attempts poetry. The two of us had a conversation about her book about three years ago when I was having difficulties writing, (I still am). Her advice was to just write, if even a couple of sentences or one word over and over, eventually everything will come into place.

Her poetry and writing have a nice smooth calming effect and left me wanting more.
