The Mind of a Writer

The mind of a writer can perhaps be best described as a sponge. People do and say things that never get noticed by most, but become permanently lodged in the mental file cabinet of one who feels the need to express themselves through the written word. Truman Capote suffered the wrath of his friends, when he used their lives in his writing, which struck him as rather foolish. They were after all, confiding in a novelist.

  1. The mental filing cabinet – that’s exactly what it’s like. It’s like I store up all these ideas/conversations/images/etc. and all I want to do is write them down. Over a lifetime, they accumulate and it can feel like the filing cabinet is one jumbled mess. God to write everything down to sort it all out.
