Mr. Bukowski is wrong. Yesterday I met a bunch of folks who proved it does not work that way. If you want to be a writer you do have to sit for hours staring at your computer screen – the best thing I heard was what took someone six months to write. The other cool piece was offered up as not quite ready and needing to be read to somebody first.
Having it roar out might be a pleasant sound to oneself, but it is unlikely to please an audience with a more tasteful ear. We did have a couple of people from the Bukowski school of writing letting it roar out – it was a little difficult not to wince and cover one’s ears, but the gynac and the gentleman in construction who write on the side did show me the one other quality writers-to-be need in good measure – courage.
