Squeezing out of sensation

"You must squeeze out of yourself every sensation, every thought, every image, - mercilessly, without reserve and without remorse: you must search the darkest corners of your heart, the most remote recesses of your brain, - you must search them for the image, for the glamour, for the right expression. And you must do it sincerely, at any cost, you must do it so that at the end of your day's work, you should feel exhausted, emptied of every sensation and every thought, with a blank mind and an aching heart, with the notion that there is nothing, - nothing left in you". Joseph Conrad

and I thought writing was fun..

Writing in the Margins

Don't just Dream or Talk about it - WRITE it @
