Poets and writers in the same category as seers and prophets? Those are interesting companions. And on a certain level, it makes sense. There are times I write, creating a story with little regard for anything other than getting words on the page. Later, as I re-read the story, I often find unintended meaning.
However, I don’t believe writers are bereft of wisdom. To the contrary, I feel writers, in the process of converting thoughts and ideas into a physical manifestation visible to others, hone their perspective to a degree where they develop their universal wisdom. Daily writing tweaks their wisdom, which further permeates the instincts and inspirations writers unconsciously invoke.
Do you rely on your instinct when you write?
Keep on writing.
