However since it is
New Year's Eve
and I have lip cancer
I will place my
paper hat on my
concussion and dance

Amis' specifically used the word "novel", and maybe he did mean to limit his observation to novel writing but I see the idea as more inclusive to include all literary arts, and maybe the visual and musical arts too.

"Deciding to write a novel about something - as opposed to finding you are writing a novel around something - sounds to me like a good evocation of writer's block."

Umm said:‘Tell me some true things about fighting.’

'Tell me you love me.’

'I love you,’ the girl said. 'You can publish it in the Gazzettino if you like. I love your hard, flat body and your strange eyes that frighten me when they become wicked. I love your hand and all the other wounded places.’

- Ernest Hemingway; “Across the River and Into the Trees”

“No one has imagined us. We want to live like trees,
sycamores blazing through the sulfuric air,
dappled with scars, still exuberantly budding,
our animal passion rooted in the city.”
