ZJG BHP 04. Portrait

Write about what you know

My Muse said to me

In the Athen’s library

When imagination shaped my

Golden Age of writing and



Even when writing fiction

You’ll need knowledge about

A theme you’ll tackle.

Research. Research.

So I thought writing about

The person I knew best

Would be easy.


Besides. I write and get on

With it.

At some time the story will

Develop. Now –

With a portrait or an attempt

For a personality depiction

My approach would be

To stay at ease.

Write first down the scenes

That are most lively in my

Mind. No plan. Go as it comes.

It’ll never be that objective

But then I’ve lived with my

Spouse for 51 years

And do I know her?
