'As things stand now, I am going to be a writer. I'm not sure that I'm going to be a good one, but until the dark thumb of fate presses me to the dust and says 'you are nothing,' I will be a writer.' - Hunter. S. Thompson
Mass creativity seems to come in waves of unified labor, as though there is a psychosomatic bank of ideas that each individual taps into at once; a divine antennae plunging down to earth like a waterfall in slow motion, pumping its human vessels with illumination. Sometimes the stimulus that surrounds us is so full that it feels tangible, like you could tilt your head back, open your mouth and swallow it. In order to create I must consume. I want saturation. And I want the things that I create to saturate.
“Every once in a while, but not often, you can sit down and write a thing that you know is going to stand people’s hair on end for the rest of their lives- a perfect memory of some kind, like a vision, and you can see the words rolling out of your fingers and bouncing around for a while like wild little jewels before they finally roll into place & line up just exactly like you wanted them to…” - Hunter.S.Thompson
