The suites of transformations you need to express things, respecting the conditions your have to respect.
You write, you read what you just wrote, in a loop. A closed balanced between you and you. A pleasure can resonate.
Pull weapons out of other people’s work – to use you own resources.
Find the person you write for – even if this person does not really exist. Golem it.
Use what is made for use. Find a drawer : open it. Break what is fragile. Push what tilts.
Try what has never be done, but appears as possible.
Your work can always been gone back over. This is your job. Find your “until”.
Try a thousand ways to write an idea until you meet a favorable words figure.
Find a force. Find where to use it. Apply a force.
At one moment you are attracted by what is needed, by what goes forward to the goal.
You dream to write, you desire to write, you call. But it’s not to be confused with the state where you MAKE.
Our most precious states are unstable – the artist answers trying to stabilize them.
What you feel. What you do. What you want to make feel.
All these microseeds come from Paul Valéry‘s Poietis (Poïétique). They aren’t quotes, I kneaded them for your pleasure. Have fun.
