i've been perusing The Quote Garden for material for the A-Z blogging challenge in April. i came across this one about Bach and knew i had to share it. just subsitute the words "story ideas" for "tunes" and this is me. i suspect a lot of you are the same.
"I remembered a story of how Bach was approached by a young admirer one day and asked, "But Papa Bach, how do you manage to think of all these new tunes?" "My dear fellow," Bach is said to have answered, according to my version, "I have no need to think of them. I have the greatest difficulty not to step on them when I get out of bed in the morning and start moving around my room." ~Laurens Van der Post
ideas - they seem to be everywhere.
