Quoting Walt Whitman

“The secret of it all, is to write in the gush, the throb, the flood, of the moment–to put things down without deliberation– without worrying about their style–without waiting for a fit time or place. . .  By writing at the instant the very heartbeat of life is caught.”  Walt Whitman

All of a sudden! Lickety-split! I thought for sure, he'd had a fit! He jumped onto another limb and hid so well I couldn't see him.

All of a sudden! Lickety-split!
I thought for sure, he’d had a fit!
He jumped onto another limb
and hid so well I couldn’t see him.
