I am working on a large manuscript made up of lots of unconnected notes, each a few words to several pages long. I decide to just string them together without trying to edit them into a whole. I am writing possible titles on a page of notebook paper in blue ink: "Because I Don't Care," and "Because I Can't Be Bothered."

It sounds completely au courant...the sense of existence as "smattering" now in lit...

I'm doing the exact same thing, except my working titles are:

"The Unnatural History of the Federal City"

"Too Big to Fail"

and, via Dewey Willis:
"The square root of soon is never."
