The sentences won’t hold their weight. The charactersstiffen and hide their faces, or stand at centre stage and shriek.The plot takes corners you can’t follow, a dark figure with backturned, distant steps. The set is a series of shadows, or postcardsof overused plastic towns. The voice sounds lifted from ananswering machine – or an emergency room. The mood floods, or flatlines. The words tick, bloodless, from left to right. Or animalsappear in the alphabet, things with raw faces that make shapes ofpain and bare their teeth. The page goes into spasm. The page goesinto stasis. You spend days staring down the vanishing point of themess. But mess is good. Mess is learning. The writer needspermission to make a mess."Dr Tracey Slaughter lectures in CreativeWriting in the English Programme at the University of Waikato.
