WRITERS ON WRITING #88: Dorothy M Richardson

While I write, everything vanishes but what I contemplate.  The whole of what is called 'the past' is with me, seen anew, vividly… It moves, growing with one’s growth.  Contemplation is adventure into discovery; reality.  What is called 'creation,' imaginative transformation, fantasy, invention, is only based on reality.  Poetic description a half-truth?  Can anything produced by man be called 'creation?'
