Fritz Leiber: On Writing

Incidentally, my vision of the Mouser and Fafhrd peering down into dark waters for hints of alien life—is a very apt picture of the writer at his creative work. He peers into the black pool of his unconscious mind, glimpses a flash of green, notes down the exact shade of color and rhythm of disappearance—and then as much as a year later, in the course of actually writing a story, hooks and pulls out of that pool a seventy-tentacled green monster tall as a skyscraper.1)
