“You sit with your notebook, and after a while something begins to interest you. The poet William Stafford described it as being like fishing: you throw out your line and wait for a little tug. Maybe all you get is a minnow, three or four words that seem to have a little magic, and even that can be enough to get writing started. And a minnow can be pretty good bait for bigger fish.” from The Poetry Home Repair Manual  – p 13
