On Writing

Am currently in the v early stages of writing my new performance work Sulphur. Feel like this is always the 

D i f f i c u l t 

bit. 

Anne Carson in this brilliant interview with Sam Anderson said this 'on writing':

we’re talking about the struggle to drag a thought over from the mush of the unconscious into some kind of grammar, syntax, human sense; every attempt means starting over with language. starting over with accuracy. i mean, every thought starts over, so every expression of a thought has to do the same. every accuracy has to be invented. . . . i feel i am blundering in concepts too fine for me.

Yup.


Sounds about right...
