I’m talking about real writers, not parrots.
And the relentless pursuit of something new. Always. Because what he’s already done becomes old. He knows that. He covers ground and that’s that. Then he moves on.
He can’t wait for millions of people to catch up. He’s not in that business. He’s not selling the same hot dogs over and over.
The shift to the new is not just about content and subject matter. It’s about how he expresses himself. How he writes. He can’t go on and on with the same way of writing forever.
He’s an explorer. After he’s made the journey to one unmapped country, he sails to another.
This is how he keeps himself going.
If you made a list of great writers and then read them, you’d notice each one wrote differently. They weren’t great because they all adhered to one style.
There is no one style.
There is no single universal mind with one set of rhythms and one way of expression. That’s a fantasy entertained by people who aren’t artists.
Every real artist is unique. He stands out from and against The One Unity, which is a philosophic fiction invented for the purpose of control.
Knowing this, the writer turns that apple cart upside down.
The One Unity is a metaphysical glazed donut.
It’s hypnotic. The writer breaks the trance and the spell.
When he does, people who are under the spell say, “I don’t understand what he’s doing.” But somewhere down deep, they do understand. An explosion has detonated and it’s working its way to the surface.
We’re in an extreme technological age, which has its own hypnotic spells. The dome heads of technology are floating along on a platform that is supported by pillars they believe are firm and powerful. They’re wrong. The pillars are already cracking. The whole edifice is tilting. Because so much of the technology and the language surrounding it are dead.
Real writing exposes the lie of that language. It cuts it to ribbons.
The writer relentlessly pursues what hasn’t been done before, by and with his imagination.
He finds his way by inventing the way.
