"I do experience some version of the tension or gap between the virtual and the actual whenever I write: there is always a difference between what I intended to make and what I’ve made. The materials always resist. But this doesn’t have to be described in terms of doom. It can also be described as discovery, that you discover the form and content of the work in the act of writing."
— Ben Lerner (Leaving the Atocha Station, a book you NEED to read) via Flavorwire » The Future of American Fiction: An Interview with Ben Lerner
P.S. I love the crazy graphic-photos of writers in this series on Flavorpill.
