How to Comfort a Writer1.How to Comfort a Writer by katamaris4ever
Never tell a writer he’s good enough
Because he knows this isn’t the case
And he’ll become conscious at the lie
That he can stop improving
And will be unable to show his true feelings.
Tell her she can change
And what you liked
About her displays of affection
Written in words of wonder
At the bright beautiful world ahead
Never tell a writer’s she’s perfect
For she’ll twist your words into decadent deceit
She knows that this is impossible
And will realize you never looked into her heart
As she wore it on her sleeve
Tell him that there’s work to be done
Before he can truly be an artist
But say that he’s on the right track
And guide him with words of encouragement
In his eyes, affirmation is excellence.
Never scoff when a writer bursts out
Bubbling with his interests
For this is what he holds to himself
Wanting to express what dwells inside his mind

The boy fidgeted nervously, his eyes focusing on a blank spot in the room as he bit his lower lip, barely acknowledging Ramey’s presence.

Perhaps that is what caused the incident. Already it was clear he should be locked up. Not for the first time, Ramsey was glad for the cuffs around the boy’s ankles and the camera in the corner.
“Alright, why don’t you begin by telling me your name?” Ramsey
