    you have a genius for inventing characters and living through them. you can see the essential craner self in all these masks. i really love it. and the writing is so unapologetically stylish. none of that english dowdiness and self-effacement.

    I know but I’m not sure I can write like that now. I was young then, even 29 when I wrote the last piece which was goodbye to all that even then apart from one last hurrah

    you'll feel your way back into it. it takes time and practice and being serious about it.

    you need to get the feel for weights and tempos and rhythms again. its the material essentially.
    it literally is a feeling game. always materials. it's like learning to manipulate any other set of objects.
    you come to internalise a feel for how they act. muscle memory stuff. just knowing it.

    i know this stuff because i am the best writer in the world. if i tell you you have a natural gift that it is very important not to waste then you have to listen and obey. it's very important not to turn your back on your own destiny. it's equivilent to commiting suicide. it is a very grave sin.
