As from June 1st I have resigned from all my work as an art- and literature reviewer. I have been writing critiques since 2006, and see this writing as an important part of my education. But now its time to start working, that is writing on my own material, which really leave me little & no time to review the work of others.
To enforce the structure around my writing I have rented an office in town (I used to do all my writing at home). The office is a small loft space in an old sea-house by the harbor, right in the middle of Stavanger.
I have decided to leave my Mac at home for a while, and to do my writing (sketches and first drafts) by hand. I try to shield myself from distractions. I’m forcing myself to listen to my own voice, and I read – a lot, but no longer as a critic.
Today I read as a thief …!
