“You will write if you will write without thinking of the result in terms of a result, but think of the writing in terms of discovery, which is to say that creation must take place between the pen and the paper, not before in a thought or afterwards in a recasting. Yes, before in a thought, but not in careful writing. It will come if it is there and if you will let it come, and if you have anything you will get a sudden creative recognition...”
( quoted from Nine Gates , Entering the Mind of Poetry by Jane Hirshfield)
