A friend recently criticized my writing saying it all starts with a reference to a conversation with someone. Ironically I am starting this post by referencing a conversation with him.
“All good non-fiction writing is about going out and finding someone else and inhabiting their world and representing it to readers.”Malcolm GladwellI recently heard this quote while watching Gladwell’s masterclass trailer. It is so true. That’s how I get most of my ideas. By talking to someone else and inhabiting their world and representing it to readers. Sometimes this someone else is a book, other times it is a friend.
