“Time being of the essence in the purity of speech, sketching language is undisturbed flow from the mind of personal secret idea-words, blowing (as per jazz musician) on subject of image.” In 1957, Jack Kerouac published “Essentials of Spontaneous Prose,” in response to a request from Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs to explain how he wrote The Subterraneans in three days.
