“The gift of writing is to be self forgetful…

…to get a surge of inner life or inner supply or unexpected sense of empowerment, to be afloat, to be out of yourself.”

– Seamus Heaney.

  1. Yes, even if I’m mistaken about my own talent, I have the feeling at least that I know what Heaney is speaking of, but unfortunately at the moment my inner self feels depleted, and I’m not working well. Does he have a quote for that state too?
