Interview with Jacques Derrida on the sudden doubt a writer experiences when their creative process has halted for whatever reason. As an aspiring professional writer, this video is highly relevant to my own process. Many a night have I found myself kept awake by a wave of self-consciousness about my current work. Even during my waking consciousness, I have occasionally been forced to deflect considerations about my writing until after it has been critiqued or at the very least, completed. While troublesome, I am grateful for this fear because it forces me to justify my work to myself, and I am my worst critic.
