Wordy Wednesday // Inspiration

No lovely words this week, just some writing inspiration/motivation I thought I would share with you all.



 Every story, every incident, every bit of conversation is raw material for me. I would like to be everyone; a cripple, a dying man, a whore, and then come back to write about my thoughts, my emotions, as that person. But I am not omniscient. I have to live my life, and it is the only one I’ll ever have.
— Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath, August 1950


When you spend time with your friends, what do you talk about? Those things which made an impression on you that day, that week … I write stories the same way. Events at home, in school, at work, in the street, these are the bases for a story. Some experiences leave such a deep impression that instead of talking about them at the club I work them into a novel.
— Naguib Mahfouz
