Not a writter

See that's the thing I am not a writer and things I wright about sound so personal, and so I here a voice in my head that says "No No NO Don write that!"
It reminds me of a performance piece by Vito Acconci called Face Off from 1973, where he sits with recorder and plays a tape of himself talking about personal things. As the tape plays Vito starts to censor the tape by Shouting "NO!" until the tape player can no longer be heard. ( Great work!)
It is a perfect example of self censorship.
Here is an explanation of the work

Here is a 41 second snippet from the video.
