Born to Write?

"Each of us has been designed for one of two immortal functions, as either a storyteller or as a cross-legged listener to tales of wonder, love and daring."
Bryce Courtenay
(contemporary, best-selling author in Australia )

I agree with this statement. I have found, though, that I also enjoy being the listener, or the reader. Storytelling started around the campfires right after language became useful. I can see in my mind, primitive folks way back then, who probably did a mime type storytelling we would think of as charades.


  1. Thank you very much for sharing this quote! I absolutely adore it. I myself love to be the listener and the reader as much as the in-the-works storyteller that I am striving to be.

  2. Beautiful quote!
