# Bugbee wrote little
Bugbee’s daily writing, as exemplified in The Inward Morning — Bugbee, is succinct. If I understood The philosophical method of Henry Bugbee, what he wrote in his journal each day was all the writing he did that day. It looks lazy. But it does mirrors a poet’s life. A poet doesn’t have to force word counts. Bugbee, it seems, spent more time outdoors. He lived more outdoors than write. He wrote even way less than Henry David Thoreau.
