MANTRA 13

Filed under: Mantra — M Kitchen @ 9:41 am

Alan Moore quotes:

“There’s that white page somewhere there at the beginning of the process, whether you’re talking in cosmological terms where the white page is the quantum vacuum. If you’re a novelist then it is literally a white page.”

“Now, what you have to do is limit yourself. You cannot work in a complete conceptual void. Which is what the white page is. You have to start putting restrictions upon yourself.”

“Then, what is productive very often is to immediately come up with a bunch more shackles with which to bind yourself.”

“Start imposing ridiculous little rules, just perhaps on a whim, or because you think they might help. You don’t have to be too logical about this, although logic can help.” *
