I'm really not qualified to talk about the writing process. I'm not even sure there is such a thing. What I do know is that writing is something my mind is peculiarly suited to do, and that the process by which the machine running in the background is as mysterious to me as it is to an English Lit professor who can' t perform cunnilingus without researching journal articles first. I often don't know where the things that occur to me originate, or even sometimes what they mean. I can't describe in concrete terms the difference between an idea that is worth scribbling in my Moleskine and the epherma [sic] good for little more than chewing a bit over a cup of coffee and spitting out like gum. I can only describe the experience, and the process I've developed to make the quirky mis-fires of my brain into a product.
