The Nacreous Oughts

08 April 2004

WRITER'S BLOCK. What is it, where does it come from, what can be done about it? I forgot the magic words, does that mean Magic itself is a lie? Apparently.

Sometimes it is only bashfulness before the enormity of what we are to be called to do next. Sometimes it's sheer stupefying lack of talent. Sometimes it's not having the right kind of ink pen and note paper to write with.

As Empson says, "The waste remains, the waste remains and kills."
