I just found this concept in a book written by a singer, Dominique A. He writes his songs, and he knows what every writer knows : L’écriture nous devance…
Writing forestalls us
What you write becomes a text. This text knows things you don’t know. It’s ahead.

Prescience? Does the fact of writing activate something? Does the writing process use some parts of our brain who… know things?
Did it happen to you?
Thanks for reading!
