Strange Book is not a single story, and although at first I wanted to organize all my strange ideas into a book and make the nonsense seem meaningful, I found that once I started to do that, things became less cool, and I started to think about what kind of story structure to use, what kind of beginning to use, What kind of ending, what kind of character, these are things that I didn't care about.
Then I realized that perhaps it was right not to care about all this, that I had lost my freedom for form and rules. So now it's still chaotic, and maybe in the process of gradual change it starts to become orderly, it becomes organized, or maybe it stays that way. But even so, that's what I hope, I don't want to write a book.
The reason I keep doing this is because the stories I think about are getting less and less interesting. If I get better at it, I might realize that I'm entertaining myself, drawing rubbish that I don't need to save anymore, but I find that the more I learn, the less interesting it is, which makes me feel that it makes sense to keep these things. Maybe if I keep going, I'll suddenly be enlightened, and I'll regain my gift for gibberish.
