III Sobre escrever [mandamentos]

Quarta-feira, 22.08.12


1. Work on one thing at a time until finished.
2. Start no more new books, add no more new material to ‘Black Spring.’
3. Don’t be nervous. Work calmly, joyously, recklessly on whatever is in hand.
4. Work according to Program and not according to mood. Stop at the appointed time!
5. When you can’t create you can work.
6. Cement a little every day, rather than add new fertilizers.
7. Keep human! See people, go places, drink if you feel like it.
8. Don’t be a draught-horse! Work with pleasure only.

9. Discard the Program when you feel like it—but go back to it next day. Concentrate. Narrow down. Exclude.
10. Forget the books you want to write. Think only of the book you are writing.
11. Write first and always. Painting, music, friends, cinema, all these come afterwards.

III Sobre escrever [lista reduzida de sugestões]

1. Know what each sentence says,
2. What it doesn't say,
3. And what it implies.
4. Of these, the hardest is knowing what each sentence actually says.
5. There are innumerable ways to write badly.
6. The usual way is making sentences that don't say what you think they do.
7. The only link between you and the reader is the sentence you're making.
8. You can't revise or discard what you don't consciously recognize.
9. These assumptions are prohibitions and obligations are the imprint of your education and the culture you live in.
10. Distrust them.

Like most received wisdom, what people think they know about writing works in subtle, subterranean ways. For some reason, we seem to believe most strongly in the stuff that gets into our heads without our knowing or remembering how it got there. What we think we know about writing sounds plausible. It confirms our generally false ideas about creativity and genius. But none of this means it's true.
