Thomas Bernhard on the Art and Anxiety of Writing

Finished with Concrete. Wondered where "concrete" and the suicide would come in: both at the end.


Loved this bit about writing:

When we have sentences in our heads we still can't be certain of being able to get them down on paper, I thought. The sentences frighten us; first the idea frightens us, then the sentence, then the thought that we may no longer have the idea in our heads when we want to write it down. Very often we write down a sentence too early, the another too late; what we have to do is to write it down at the proper time, otherwise it's lost.
