Writing between the lines

Discovered this snippet in a ‘journal’ from a few years ago

The other day I was reading something – or listening to someone on the radio – a writer who said that they write by hand in unlined notebooks because they don’t want anyone or anything to tell him them where to write- i.e. between the lines.

Well rebel writer – free thinker, whatever – you’re constrained/restrained by the page, by the pen, by the letters and words, by the language, by everything you’ve ever thought, felt or experienced in any other way – so shut the fuck up – if you don’t want to be constrained/restrained by the lines then fucking don’t be.
