The satisfaction of writing

The deepest satisfaction of writing is precisely that it opens up new spaces within us of which we were not aware before we started to write. To write is to embark on a journey whose final destination we do not know. Thus, creative writing requires a real act of trus. We have to say to ourselvesm "I do not yet know what I carry in my heart, but I trust it will emerge as I write." Writing is like giving away the few loaves and fishes one has, in trust they will multiply in the giving. Once we dare to "give away" on paper the few thoughts that come to us, we start discovering how much is hidden underneath... and gradually come in touch with our own riches. (Henri Nouwen)
