"Roses are red, violets are blue. Your cleavage is incredible."
can be turned into...
"Roses are red, violets are flowers. Your huge pair of boobs gives me legit super powers."
Actually, you probably shouldn’t use that last line. I'm still learning.
Edit, edit, edit
Whether you’re writing poetry, a narrative, or even a silly listicle, you always have to edit. Once you go over it a first time, go over it a second time. Once you go over it a second time, go over it a third time. Edit until it feels right and then let it go. You’re never going to have a perfect version, but that’s the double-edged sword of writing. A double-edged sword with a third, far sharper side.
The point is, you can’t throw down words onto a page and walk away from it like… well, anyone in any Michael Bay movie.
