"There’s writing that is everything planned. You have some idea, some philosophy, some story- narrative- whatever you want to express, that you want to get down on paper, and whatever literary devices or techniques you have at your command with the intent to express that. But there is also writing that is more open, more associational, and even accidental. You don’t necessarily know where it’s going to go while you’re doing it."

- Raymond Pettibon
