On Writing

The greatest barrier to truly influential or eloquent prose style is that which occurs when a writer assumes (or aspires to) unique and separate – effectively isolated, discontinuous – individuation as inalienable symbolic possession of the creative art and act. Words as a living embodiment of complexity quite naturally express themselves both through (and as) us. Ownership is a neurotic pit that – notwithstanding the hybrid existential obligations of commercial self-sustainment or psychological and emotional subjectivity – fools us into believing that we ever do anything other than merely steward and cultivate a presence of meaning (and culture) which neither belongs to nor owns us and that subsequently only ever implies our own reflexive absence as and in or through an effectively unbounded creative freedom.

Writing is never just about writing.
