Telling: Altars & Artifacts


no time

I have gone too long with no time. No time to myself. No time for nothing, for sinking in and filtering out. No time for spinning life into language. I grow brittle and snappish.

I said to Watt, "I have worked myself into a schedule which doesn't allow time for writing. If I continue this way I will shatter." He answered, "Then schedule writing time before everything else." Such a clean and simple answer.
