"Man acts as though he were the shaper and master of language, while in fact language remains the master of man." -- Heidegger
The 3 A.M. Creative Writing Exercise
Reviewing what I happened to write very late last night, where I expected to find the sentence, "They loaded our belongings into a rented van," I instead found "They loaded our belongings into a rented can." What's frustrating is, if I kept the typo, it would probably take my novel in a much more interesting direction. Has this ever happened to anyone else?
