Correspondence with Sri Aurobindo

The Complete Set

For a week or so I have not been able to write a single line. But it struck me – why not try something in prose which, I suppose, can be done even in the absence of any inspiration. But I am faced with the difficulty of a weak style, lack of plots and the thought of a failure.

You can try – making it the object to get rid of the defects of style and structure.

Will you kindly give me some advice on this, as well as your Force for the necessary development? When the current of inspiration comes to a stop, I think sometimes that perhaps you have forgotten me in your busy moments.

It does not depend on that [at] all. It depends on a certain state of receptivity – an opening of the channel between the inner plane where the inspiration comes and the outer through which it has to pass.
