On being a WriterBeing a writer
Suzan Sontag on writer: "I said, you must be obsessed."
The FSG released Susan Sunday's Debriefing on Sunday, a new compilation of the writer's feature films. Talking of estrangement, Sunday is also a character of adoration for many authors, partly because of the many, many views she had about the letter, and what good letter should be. About what a writer has to be:
Authors must be four people: 1 provides the materials; 2 lets it come out; 3 is flavor; 4 is brain. One great writer has all 4 - but you can still be a good writer with only 1 and 2; they are most important. Being a great writer: About the writer's morals:
Obviously I think of the writer of fictions and tales and play as a moralist. Sincere belletrists think in practice about ethical issues. You' re teaching our ability to make judgment. To find a place in the world of modern fiction: I am happy to be free of the kind of one-note depression that is so typical of modern literature.
A good writer is a bellowing egoist, even to the point of impudence. You can be on both types of writers: You are either an outer (Homer, Tolstoy) or an inner (Kafka) writer. It'?s the whole thing or the insanity. Just like figural paintings, Homer + Tolstoy attempt to portray a universe of exalted love for one's neighbour, beyond judgement.
I' m just gonna be the second kind of writer. which makes them write: It seldom has anything to do with what I am going to do. There is a great deal of artistic and historical literature, architecture studies, musical studies and scientific literature on many topics. I feel blameworthy for not being a writer. I' m a jerk for a really unusual kind of cliché.
Not so frivolously, my role models for fiction are the poet's fiction; many of the authors I adore the most were verses when they were or could have been young. Self-expressive (or not) when writing: It'?s a mystery to write. You have to be in different states of concept and realization, in a state of utmost vigilance and awareness and in a state of great naivety and unawareness, although this probably applies to the praxis of any kind of work, it can rather apply to typing, because the writer - unlike the artist or composers - works in a media that you use all the way through, throughout your awakening years.
" I' d assume that most authors are distrustful of the conversations, against what happens in normal use. There are different ways of dealing with this. Lifelong obligation to write means offsetting these incommensurable needs. However, I think that the self utterance is far too coarse.
I would throw away my typing machine if I thought that what I do while I' m typing expresses itself. It is a much more complex task than that. What good authors should do: Unnecessarily to say that these cheeky rhetoric fell out of my mouths when I thought of more prescriptions for the writer's virtues.
That doesn't rule out being fun. About the writer's use for the world: References could be described as the story of man's reaction to what is living and what is moral when culture develops and interacts with each other. Authors can do something to fight these stereotypes of our separation, our differences - because authors are creators, not only broadcasters, of Myth.
I think a writer is someone who cares about the whole wide oceans. Spelling the Self: Mainly about myself seems to me to be a rather indirectly way to what I want to work about. Although my development as a writer has gone towards more liberty with the "I" and more use of my personal experiences, I have never been persuaded that my taste, my fate and my misfortune have a particularly model temper.
This is what keeps feeding them and giving them an image of something better. How to become a writer: I get written all the while or get in contact with me about "What should I do if I want to be a writer? "I say well, do you really want to be a writer?
Otherwise, of course, it is completely fine to spell, just as it is completely fine to draw or perform a piece of music, and why not? I' m sorry that only authors can do that. How come folks can't have this as an artistic thing?
But, of course, if you want to live your writer lifestyle, it's auto-slavery.
