Writing in my sleep

papiermache sculpture by slk

Sleeping Wing slk 2010

‘Sleep on it’ they say. I’ve finally got to the stage of life when I find out it’s true. Deeply deeply re-writing A Body of Knowledge, I’ll finish a chapter, glance ahead to see what to tackle next, shut down for the day (or night). Then towards morning, or walking about doing the Rest of Life next day, I’m suddenly struck. ‘He wouldn’t say it that way, it’d be…’ or ‘She has to remember the time they…’ or ‘omg, X has to happen before they discover Y.’

Feeling good about Trust the Process. Let things come to me. Don’t force it.

The blue wing thing is an abstract piece of sculptural papiermache I made. It came as a dream image.
