We are inspired by divine power to write.
Writing is talking, except you get the chance to edit what you just said
Being the Novelist-in-Residence at a riad hotel in the kasbah of an Arabic North African city is a lot like trying to write one’s memoirs on shreds of napkins in a nuthouse.
Whenever I encounter writer’s block, I stop writing … with my hands; and I then start writing with my legs.
It’s easy to write a sentence, paragraph, or book. What’s difficult is writing the best sentence, paragraph, or book, you can write.
To unlock the writer’s block is to keep writing until you can unknot the “not”. If you cannot, then put a can in the plot and unwrap it a lot!
They fuck you up, your mum and dad? No, that wasn’t it at all. Well, they did do that, perhaps, but they also allowed you to become the person, and the writer, that you had it in you to be.
As I am a work in progress, you shall see me more or less? Don’t shake me out if I digress. As of me less, from me more of my work, I guess.
