SCHAFFER, Margareth. Writing about the act of writing. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2009, vol.21, n.spe, pp.105-111. ISSN 0102-7182.

This text aims to discuss theoretical problematizations about the act of writing, relating this subject with writing experiences in school. The principal references are concepts of Jacques Lacan and Fernando Pessoa texts about the act of writing. The article puts forward the argument that writing is a complex issue, considering its condition of real "impossibility" and the difficulties that reality of polysemy brings to us. Finally, the author establishes relations between writing, écriture, creation and inscription.

Keywords : Words; writing; creation.
