What Inspires Me: Fran Lebowitz

Last week I saw Fran Lebowitz at the Athenaeum Theatre which The Wheelers Centre organised.
Fran is someone who inspired me to speak my truth when I write and not be apologetic for it.

These were three of her quotes which resonated with me that night:

 “The reason I read so much is because it’s better than life.”

“I write so slowly I could write with my own blood and I wouldn’t hurt myself.”

 “You can’t teach writing –
It’s like teaching people to be tall.”

What Inspires Me: Nigella Lawson

 
Last month I saw Nigella Lawson at the School of Life ‘On Why Food Matters.”
Nigella is someone who inspired me and my cooking due to her not being a professional chef and simply loving food and writing about it.

These were two of her quotes which resonated with me that night:

“Cooking teaches lessons in life.”

“Baking is like chemistry and poetry.”
