“I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means. What I want and what I fear.”
When I write down the words to describe what I’m thinking about, I see the words, the patterns I couldn’t see when the thoughts were playing pinball in my brain. Writing helps me clear my mind, and writing to a larger audience helps me see connections and ties that I had never seen before. I don’t have all the answers, but nor did I ever claim to. I only hope that we can figure it out together.
