Bookmarked Thoughts as nest eggs (austinkleon.com)

By simply writing down a thought, you encourage more thoughts to come. When you have enough thoughts pushed together in the same space β€” a collage of thoughts, juxtaposed β€” they often lead to something totally new. This is the magic of writing.

Austin Kleon continues his reading of Thoreau, this time sharing a quote discussing the idea of writing as a way of rescuing thought. He extends with the idea of the ‘nest egg’, an idea that produces new (and original) ideas.
