When I was dreaming up the scenes, sentences, and details of another book instead of continuing the novel I was already writing, this theory came to mind, and what it suggested to me by way of corollary was this: For every unwritten but dreamed and planned novel (including, in other words, my own unfinished work) there must be an implied author. So I would be able to finish that book only when I’d again become its implied author. But when I was immersed in political affairs or—as happens so often in the course of normal life—my thoughts were too often interrupted by unpaid gas bills, ringing phones, and family gatherings, I was unable to become the author implied by the book in my dreams.
It is as if I am looking for that special place and time in which everything flows into everything else, everything is linked, and everything is aware, as it were, of everything else. All at once, the wind will die down and I will find myself becalmed in a place where nothing moves. Yet I’ll sense that there are things in these calm and misty waters that will, if I am patient, move the novel forward. What I most long for is the sort of spiritual inspiration I described in my novel Snow. ” I long for inspiration to come to me (as poems did to Coleridge—and to Ka, Snow’s hero) in a dramatic way, preferably already formed as scenes and situations that might sit well in a novel.
But you never admit to thinking such things. Neither do I. I don’t tell anyone. That the empty bottles left in front of the door belong neither to the world nor to one another. That doors, in any event, are never fully closed or open and so give cause for hope. ” That somewhere nearby, three inches beneath my feet or inside the ceiling, strange larvae are slowly gnawing through iron and concrete, like termites. That the scissors on the table suddenly spring into action to embark on a long-demanded much-dreamed-of cutting spree, attacking anything that comes before them, but that this bloody drama will last no longer than fifteen minutes.
