This site is a novel, in other words, I make it up,
characters are not real people. Any questions can be

I’m afraid to say this, but something I lack entirely is any version of the future. Not only do I not know what I want to write, I don’t even know where I want to get to, I don’t even have a narrative plan I can propose before or after my novels have been written; indeed, when I begin a novel, I don’t even know what it is going to be about, what will happen, or who the characters will be or how many, let alone how it will end.
Javier Marias, essay, Roving with a Compass, 1992
Marias captures my method of no method perfectly, I wonder how he knew?
