A couple of years ago, I was reading a Joe Zucker interview, by Chuck Close, in BOMB magazine. There was one segment, where Zucker briefly discusses the fear of many an artist, including yours truly. The plague of writer’s block. The quote above, was Close’s response.
While it sounds like something I’ve heard for years, it was one of those moments of clarity that we all seek.
Maybe, one of these days, I’ll actually get around to following his advice.
