Try Something That Hasn’t Been Tried Before

 

“I must say that I get impatient with fiction that doesn’t try something that hasn’t been tried before, preferably with the medium itself.”

J. M. Coetzee

 

Try something you’ve never thought before?

Try something couched in fear, lingering deep in your mind?

Try something no one has tried before?

Can you feel it, lick it, see it or maybe you can touch it?

Does it matter if it changes anything or maybe changes you?

Stretch, kneed, bend, mutilate, cultivate, tear, collate and erase?

Roll in mud, lay in a graveyard, traverse unknown avenues and feel (really) awful?
