What is wild writing? Edge, has a beat that will not stop, driving, searching, on fire. Lewis Thomas of ‘Lives of a Cell’ fame also wrote a book of essays entitled, ‘The Medusa and the Snail.’ Thomas posited that when he ponders the symbiotic relationship between the Medusa and Snail he cannot keep his mind still. Thus, the whole biosphere is swirled and swept up in the symbiosis, the planet for that matter and everything else. That is wild, and that is a great way to write.
