The lust to write

Like many an aspiring writer, Sontag wrote her notebooks with a self-conscious awareness that, ultimately, her words were meant to be read. At 24, she offered thoughts "On Keeping a Journal": "Superficial to understand the journal as just a receptacle for one's private, secret thoughts - like a confidante who is deaf, dumb and illiterate. In the journal I do not just express myself more openly than I could do to any person; I create myself."
