Have you ever heard someone say something that made you want to run to your computer/mobile device/word processor/tape recorder/pen and pad and start writing? It happens to me all the time. While listening to NPR this morning, I heard a review of a new album that features all sad songs. (I apologize for not remembering the name of the artist.) What I do remember is thinking about the sad/beautiful songs that I like and how they are just waiting (like a pulsating character in a video game before you press start) for me to write stories about them.
Here is a link to quotes for writers. Let me know which ones you like. I hope one sparks a story in you!
