Susan Sontag on Writing

Susan Sontag was an interesting woman who often looked at things quite differently to others, so when I saw this link, I thought it worth a look.

There are lots of curious thoughts on that link, here's one I particularly liked:
Quote:
The solution to a problem — a story that you are unable to finish — is the problem. It isn’t as if the problem is one thing and the solution something else. The problem, properly understood = the solution. Instead of trying to hide or efface what limits the story, capitalize on that very limitation. State it, rail against it. (7/31/73)

Makes some sense I suppose. If you are trying to finish a story/novel and what you have doesn't satisfy then the problem is in the ending itself. I don't imagine there is any easy quick fix to that problem either. It's a new thing every time.
