(i'll have to go back and re-think my earlier post;
maybe salinger is an exception. but i still can't
imagine poets worrying about their readers' needs (or
even who their readers might be) while in the midst of
the muse's visit.)


Sorry about the extra m, Kim. When I write I am seized with what I am
writing and I don't think much about myself nor any presumed reader. After
writing I re-read what I wrote and turn on the glaring eye of the reader. I
save all I write at least to remind my self (paper is a great external
memory storage device) but if I think it 'sings' then I'll allow others to
read (excluding banal email posts). I have no idea what 'professional
writers" do. When I write fictionally I see what I am writing much like a
screen in my head and I record it on paper, of course it is edited with new
'visions' often. I often go to bed with my mind racing (I'm a night owl)
and I end up rising to record these things; fiction, poetry or commentary.
It annoys the hell out of my wife who is a morning person.
