William Said

We don’t know what the writer is trying to pull off in Faulkner’s reference. I think, though, sometimes the writer DOES pull it off. Winning that energy from trying and succeeding is what keeps us going, and keeps us believing, “I can pull it off, if I just keep trying.”

At least, that’s why I keep writing like crazy. I think I can pull it out of my ass one more time.

  1. Maybe William never pulled it off because he never learned to trust his demon, eh?

    (Map of mental tangents: William Faulkner… “A Rose for Emily”… “A Rose for Ecclesiastes”… that “Roger Said” quote you shared a while back…)
