“I write poems,” Danny says. “I usually try to write funny poems, or poems about sports teams from Cleveland, or poems about growing up secular Jewish in the bland Cleveland suburbs. But mostly funny poems.” Danny’s writing process is “usually fast, at least in the initial composition stages. I often start with a single line, or sometimes a title. Once I have at least one line plus a voice, it spills out pretty quick. I then spend days, weeks, or months tweaking it. Most of my revision involves cutting.”
If he could give one piece of writing advice, it would be this: “Don’t write anything you wouldn’t want to read.”
