“The secret of it all, is to write in the gush, the throb, the flood, of the moment – to put things down without deliberation – without worrying about their style – without waiting for a fit time or place. I always worked that way. I took the first scrap of paper, the first doorstep, the first desk, and wrote – wrote, wrote…By writing at the instant the very heartbeat of life is caught.”
― Walt Whitman
Thanks, Claudia, it's my new dissertation-inspiration post-it. I'm putting it up everywhere.
P.S. Didn't Clinton give his special women a book by Walt Whitman? I'm blushing, Claudia ;)
