This essay investigates the relation that the writer Frank Kafka had with time, writing, memory and his own life. In order to do this, the meditations that Maurice Blanchot dedicated to the writer and Lacan’s psychoanalytic theory on language will be used. For Kafka, the dimension of a daily and secret diary opens a third possibility in respects of the time for work and the time for writing, in a critical confrontation with the Father’s Law that Kafka understands but to which he can’t fully comply. The diary becomes the place of an inescapable impasse between life and writings, but also, remains the place in which this irresolvable tension nds its own real space.
