When I’m writing, sometimes it gets to that place where I feel like the piece is writing itself and I’m trying not to get in the way.
“There is a fullness and calmness there which can come only from knowing pain.”
(Dan Simmons, Hyperion)
“I took inspiration from Andy Warhol‘s “Empire,” his “unwatchable” 24-hour film of the Empire State Building. Similarly, imagine a book that is written with the intention not to be read. The book as object: conceptual writing; we’re happy that the idea exists without ever having to open the book.”
(UNCREATIVITY AS A CREATIVE PRACTICE)
“The world is full of objects, more or less interesting; I do not wish to add any more.”
(Kenneth Goldsmith, Uncreative Writing: Managing Language in the Digital Age)
