“We are always searching for the unconditioned, but only ever finding things.” –Novalis
We will discuss “artist habits” – a spectrum of work habits of writers gleaned from interviews and (auto)biographies, as well as practical tips for dealing with getting stuck in writing. How have these authors understood art and aesthetic experience: as a Platonic ideal to be channeled into the finite world, a garden, a God? How did this perspective translate into their work habits, if at all? In the second half of the salon, all participants are invited to share their works in progress and receive feedback from hosts and each other.
