    Hi,
    I enjoyed reading the write-up in Brevity. I was wondering whether you could explain more about how you ” . . . read one of the short chapters in Trout Fishing in America and used it as a prompt for free writing”?
    Thanks,
    -Todd

  3. I would sit at my desk, read the next chapter in Trout Fishing in America, then write for an hour whatever came to mind. I didn’t worry about making any sense; I just free associated. For example, when I read Brautigan’s chapter “Trout Fishing on the Bevel,” which is about fishing in a creek near two graveyards, I wrote about visiting my grandmother’s grave in Cambridge, Idaho.
