I’m always interested in my own process. Something about the publication of Thank You For Your Sperm has made me want to look at old stuff. This photo is from a 2010 notebook with a story (on the right page), later called “Constable Cock” (and posted at Flawnt’s), that didn’t make the cut for the collection (despite its cockiness). One of 200 stories from that time which didn’t. There’s a stiff competition among the pages of my many notebooks for attention! On the left page is an index card on which I noted some doubts about my method. I have since moved on from writing to typewriting to dictation. Looking at my own notebook now makes me almost feel jealous: heavy paper, blue-black ink, an elegant Waterman fountain pen…I miss those artifacts of writing longhand.
