From an early interview with Bob Dylan:

 – Bob, do you make the song before breakfast every day or before supper?

– Sometimes I could go about two weeks without making up a song.

 – I don’t believe you.

– Oh, yeah, but then sometimes I write a lot of stuff. In fact, I wrote five songs last night, but I gave all the papers away. I don’t even consider even writing songs. I don’t want to write it. I don’t even consider that I wrote it when I got done. The song was there before me, before I came along. I just sort of came down and sort of took it down with a pencil, that it was all there before I came around. That’s the way I feel about it.
