Writing and Not Writing

  • John Hall
Part of the Language, Discourse, Society book series (LDS)


This piece is intended to be an account from within not of writing but of not-writing. It is autobiographical and schematic. It tries to deal with a sense which moves in and out of being a loss, a grief. It is not-writing as a shadow-process, taking its meaning from its relation to the identity of being a writer, to the processes of writing. Memories of writing play a part in what must remain a process of not-writing.
