How to Make a Manuscript - Preamble to manifesto


When in the Course of a writer’s work it becomes necessary for her to declare her independence and dissolve the writer-ly bands which have connected her with another aesthetic or process or philosophy or a combination thereof and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Creativity and of Creativity’s Muses entitle her, a decent respect to the opinions of authors requires that she should declare the causes which impel her to the declarations.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all creative work has its potential, that if imbibed with spirit by the Creativity Ethos then it has certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Inspiration.
