Exploring the Stages of Life Through Fiction…
I was listening to NPR (National Public Radio) earlier, and was really impressed by what one of the guest speakers (author Arnold Weinstein) was saying…the show was about the power of literature, and it honestly has me thinking about composing fiction in the future. Here’s a few rough excerpts and mixdowns I put-together from it:
“When I read fiction, nobody from outside is trying to fix me. I find that with Dr. Phil – all the talk show stuff – I find it very annoying…they’re always coming from THEIR point of you of who THEY think you should be. There’s constantly someone else in your business…our society seems to dwell on that, and fiction helps me to respond to people who are stepping over my threshold…“ ~ Sheila (caller from NY)
