Great piece, solid points were made. I agree with your point of not all writing is cut ups but a lot of art could be considered cut ups. There is also writing that does consist of cut ups, but to say all writing is such, I feel takes a lot of effort out of your hard work. If it took you months or years to write a book and have someone reduce it to a cut up, I would find that maddening. I enjoyed your strong stance on the subject.
