Most of us think we can't write. We think it's something other people do-- "writers." Or, if you have a novice's happy skill and an amateur's fervent love, it's a name you reserve for the skill belonging to "real writers." If we eliminate the word "writer," if we just go back to writing as an act of listening and naming what we hear, some of the rules disappear. There is an organic shape, a form-coming-into-form that is inherent in the thing we are observing. Shape does not need to be imposed. When we just let ourselves write, we get it "right."
