How to write

“If you walk down the street, in New York, for a few blocks you get this gargantuan feeling of buildings and if you walk all day you’ll be on the verge of tears. But you have to walk all day to get that sensation. What I mean is, if you write all day you’ll get into it, into your body, into your feelings, into your consciousness…” – Allen Ginsberg

This is becoming more and more relevant to me. And the more I remember it, the easier it is to find the time, and the space, to let myself write. To let myself read. To let myself wander through other people’s work until I’m on the verge of tears.

Two things

By me that you can now read online, if you’re so inclined.

The Utilitarian, from Tincture #3. A 900 word piece of fiction about one man, and many women.

Where were you? from Burley #1. Semi non-fiction. Canberra’s bush fires.
