1ST DRAFTS COME FROM “JUST” MOVING MY PEN ACROSS THE PAGE.
I WRITE AND WAIT TO SEE THE IDEAS THAT EMERGE.
AS HE MOVES THROUGH HIS OLD-TIMEY ROCKING CHAIR PITCH:
OVER THE HEAD, SPLIT HANDS,
IT’S OLD FASHIONED; LOOSENS HIM UP, GIVES HIM A RYTHMN,
FREES HIS MIND, AND LETS HIS BODY FIGURE OUT THE BEST PATH TO TAKE
TO THROW THE BALL WHERE HE WANTS IT TO GO. GIVES MOMENTUM.
