For the Writers

Let’s Pretend These Celebrity Quotes Are Actually About Writing

Writers hear something – a song, a story – and almost immediately find a way to relate it back to themselves. I’d have to say that writers, compared to most humans, have a particularly advanced knack for this. We hear an interesting tidbit on NPR and turn it into a prompt. A flaky aunt says something suddenly remarkable and it becomes the basis of a next book or article. It seems we are overly prone to this type of self-indulgence. And so, why fight it? These celebrity quotes may not have been about writing. But they sure as hell could have been. AndyGotts1Photography by Andy Gotts, @DrGotts.
