“When you make music or write or create, it’s really your job to have mind-blowing, irresponsible, condomless sex with whatever idea it is you’re writing about at the time. ” ― Lady Gaga
The other day after reading some of my work of a friend called to ask how it’s possible that I seem so normal and yet walk around with this kind of stuff in my head.
I have no idea, I said.
On the same note, my husband and I have spent many a late nights (and early mornings) lately working side by side on our respective projects. One night we had been having fairly normal conversations up until he beta read one of my chapters.
I watched his face as he read, waiting impatiently. And it is as Stephen King says, writers are a needy bunch.
Finally he looked over at me, and asked “Where does this come from?”
And while it was admittedly some of my darker and more messed up writing he was referring to I simply grinned and asked what he meant.
“I mean where do your stories come from?”
I have no idea, I told him.
But it turns out…Jason Silva does. 😉
