Automatic writing by Nancy Bell Scott.



One of a set of cards made while contemplating the poet Theodore Roethke.  On November 12, Roethke suffered the first of what was to be many mental episodes.  It happened in the cold Michigan woods, and he described the experience as having a "secret" revealed to him, which he said was the secret of "Nijinsky."  Nijinsky was a famous ballet dancer who was institutionalized for schizophrenia.  With your permission, I'd like to post your artwork at my blog:  The Letter Project.   I'm also looking for letters about literature and creativity.  All works from the blog have gone through the postal system.

This looks like a group I'll enjoy. I've published a couple of books and write for a literary journal about literature and subjects ranging from boxing to opera -- sometimes in the same article. Writers and works of special interest to me include anything by David Foster Wallace, Norman Mailer's nonfiction, Thomas Pynchon's Against The Day, Chekov's stories, anything by Vonnegut and Mark Twain. Stylistically my writing is pretty much on the other end of the continuum from my visual art. Those who've seen my visuals would have a pretty good argument that my writing would probably be incoherent...but there's a good reason for that. Ya ever just get sick of following the rules?

Looking forward to corresponding.
