Writing and Becoming

To write is to struggle and resist; to write is to become; to write is to draw a map: ‘I am a cartographer’

Gilles Deleuze

To write is not to draw a map, but to enter into a space where maps fail to appear, to find oneself thrown into a labyrinth without a beginning or an end, leading nowhere except to itself and its loss of directions; to write is to endure the infinite spiral where borders are suspended and where the ground is groundless, to turn towards what turns away and disappears in its escaping and refusal, and to become nothing but the absence of what disappears and escapes, of what is lost in the labyrinth.
