in the end you have to get frightened enough to push down the pillars of your own establishment
Brutalise all plans and conceptions. Lose patience with last year’s ideas. Bolt wrong components to wrong components. Sustained acts of Frankenstein and self-piracy. Address current emotional issues not old ones. New observations/notes. New philosophical/political insight. New structural problems/solutions. New imagery. Sense of adventure. Sense of risk in the material. Affront your hopes for yourself. Glee at breaking own definitions and taboos. Carnage in the files. Parameters missing at the outset may be the very things writing will show you. Reject nothing.
