What Inspires Me: Di Morrissey

Listened to a recent episode of  the Australian Writers Centre podcast where  prolific writer Di Morrissey was interviewed.  These were the main points Di wants writers to focus on, which completely resonated with where my current head-space is at:

 “Write from the heart…

Write what interests you…

Write what you feel…

Write what you are passionate about…

Write what touches you.”

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.”
