In the mobile, shifting, morphic space of writing, our work becomes thought itself through the creative process when the materials we work with, as we work them, do the thinking for us. The events of creating a work are the intelligence of thinking: this writing, rather than myself, is intelligent space, and is a space that is invested with multiple voices and multiple histories. These multiplicities emerge in the writing, intentionally or otherwise, and it seems that I cannot stop them from doing so, for it is not up to me: we are not the author of a work that we can call our own, but instead perhaps a writer for writing itself.
