Writing

I recently read an article that stated that through history, every art form has had its wunderkinds with the exception of literature.

I can't believe that. We have Anne Frank. There must be others. Tell me.

In the same magazine, one author said that the best groundwork of writing is thinking, so perhaps we shouldn't practice writing so much as thinking.

She must write in a whole different way than I do, I often need the writing to help the thinking.
Also, the writing is born as much through my fingers as through my conscious brain, it's strange and I can't explain it. I think it's about letting go of barriers and just putting trust in the fingers that something will come and it doesn't have to be good right away, it can always be rewritten.

  1. If Daisy Ashford isn't a wunderkind, I'll eat my tights.
