In the house, I always used to write on the second ﬂoor; I would never write downstairs. Afterward, on the contrary, I wrote in the large living room on the ground ﬂoor, perhaps to feel less alone—I don’t really know— and also to see the garden. There is some of this in the book: its solitude is that of the entire world. It is everywhere, has invaded everything. I still believe in this invasion. Like everyone else. Solitude is the thing without which one does nothing. Without which one stops looking at anything.
There was no possible plan to express the amplitude of the misery, since nothing remained of the visible events that had caused it. Nothing remained but Hunger and Pain. WRITING / 22 There was no link between violent episodes, so there was never any thought to a schedule. There never has been in my life. Never. Neither in my life nor in my books; not once. I wrote every morning. But without any kind of schedule. Never. Except for cooking. I knew exactly when to come to make something boil or keep something from burning.

It is always the open door to abandonment. There is something suicidal in a writer’s solitude. One is alone even in one’s own WRITING / 20 solitude. Always inconceivable. Always dangerous.
