LC: I think that the nature of writing is being thrown back to point zero. You look at the blank page in the morning and what next? And I think that in maintaining our associations with people, we have to have a sense of that point zero because we’re all very fragile and the backlog that we depend on can evaporate. Two or three bad moments with a friend and the whole backlog of experience can be annihilated. So we must be careful in our associations and continually review them. It’s been my experience that things can be destroyed quite easily. It’s like with a virtue. You can work on a virtue and it’s like carrying a heavy stone to the top of a hill. You can roll it down in a second but it takes a lot of work to get it up there.
