I am always bemused by critques which I read in magazines etc. particularly when the critic spots something in the writing that was perceived to have "genius" quality.
It reminds me of art critics who see things in artists's pictures that others don't see, maybe not even the artist.
If I am honest with myself, I think through some ideas and then let words flow. Others may spot something which I have never thought about. When this is pointed out I then see what they are talking about but it was never consciously devised that way
Does it need to be the case that we consciously insert the "genius" stuff or is it OK to be an unconscious natural and accept the plaudits.
