Jack Kerouac says:

akerouac” I spent my entire youth writing
slowly with revisions and
endless rehashing speculation,
and deleting–
and got so I was writing one
sentence a day and the sentence
had no FEELING.
Goddamn it,
FEELING is what I like in art,
not CRAFTINESS
and the hiding of feelings. “

  1. Feelings…yes!
    I love art (writing, art, photography, etc.) that stirs my emotions.
    HUGS and Happy Fry-Day, C!!! 🙂
    PS…Well, as you know…I have a thing for Mr. Kerouac. 😉

    Goddammit, yes!!! I was talking with A.C. about haiku and tanka one day and this hit me … all the revisions for a perfect haiku and at the end I said SO WHAT??? Why bother if it’s all form and no substance.
