I wrote a few days ago about the fear of writing: “Don’t Fear Writing. Just Write.” I’m writing this post as a follow-up because there is a wonderful outtake video from the film Derrida, where Derrida addresses the question of fear and writing. It’s a wonderful scene of Derrida discussing fear and writing in French (with English subtitles).
It’s worth a watch.
