Transcript Creating something is many kinds of discovery—-I find out what I am capable of, what I want to say. (I never know until the first draft is complete.) Gestation periods can be long and frustrating. Sometimes a poem springs full-bloom; more often, bits and pieces come to me at different times over a period of weeks and I rewrite incessantly. How can I write about women and writing and not write of my feelings and experiences in the process? It is as if I were running a quick race, a sprint! There is a mounting acceleration culminating in a huge rush of speed and then this long gasp for breath w-h-o-o-s-h::: It is a groping for something just-out-of-reach. It is mere inches away and I strain my fingers toward it; all my energy focuses on that one point. I stretch. I-am-almost-there...almost...Connection! My hand takes it! It is a sensuous experience, an inner exploration of feelings, an explosion of emotions. Thoughts hover around me, all about me, through me. Products of those thoughts rise quickly to the surface; they are immediate responses to the stimulation of highly sensitive nerve endings. The stimulus heightens; it is electric. I am consumed. Madly, I search for the means to record all that is happening. Miraculously, all the tools are within my reach and I use them. An exhilaration hurries through me and with the last lines, the last verse, the very last word, I feel the humming of nerves roaring pleasure and then spent. I am profoundly relaxed, deliciously emptied of knots, engulfed in the glow of the now-filled page. There are no other conclusions to draw about writing. It is as diverse as each woman's pen. What we all share is our new awareness, belief, and vitality in our writing. "Now from the mouth of one dark and strong flies the sound... Listen have you heard it? It's true because I say it."
