I'm ten minutes in to William S. Burroughs' 1976 lecture on writing sources and the importance of egolessness He's just given me an assignment. Of the writer, he says: "His very own words is his least interesting source." The assignment: "To put together a page or two containing no words of your own. This can come from any source: passages or dialogue, TV, films. Anything that anybody else said. You can cut it up and rearrange it any way you like.” Mine is posted below. I used two sources only, both books.
