“Imagine how you might feel about your writing if instead of typing it on a computer or writing it longhand you were dictating it to a baby elephant holding a stylus in his trunk.” This provocation comes from Stephen Nachmanovitch Free Play: Improvisation in life and art, p37-8.  The suggestion is that inspiration comes straight from the heart, but sometimes needs to be explained or translated. Our Muse is the vehicle of that translation.

What would you dictate to that baby elephant?
