Sharp! Didn’t pick up on that.
My theory is (and I forget where I heard something like this) that since writing is a kind of יש מאין, which cannot be created my man but only by G-d, we are actually being given the words. We are not making up anything, Hashem is, we are only His emissaries to put it on paper. Or screen.
So we can have meaning in our work that we did not consciously put there and do not immediately recognize. And things will sometimes just come together. Hence the “writing itself”. Or not, if it’s not meant to be.
Anyone have a source to back this up?
