Without the Blank Page

Marguerite Duras interviewed by Germain Bree, 1972 [via]

I know all kinds of people who don’t write and are writers. By that I mean that the world passes to us by way of them. They hand it on; they don’t just endure it. There are many people who write and who are much farther from being writers than people who don’t. One can write very well without the blank page.
