could use that!
and writers share many commonalities, not the least of them being a
consistent awareness of experiences as potentially useful for their
loved and talented Australian actor, John
Hargraves, once said "I
can find myself in a highly emotional situation where something
terrible has happened to me and a part of my brain says … remember
that! That's very good! You could use that!"
similar ability to detach and observe, while still being emotionally
committed, is also amply demonstrated by Arnold Bennett, who wrote
“Anna of the Five Towns”. Arnold
insisted that his description of the death of an old character in
one of his novels could not be improved on.
“I took infinite pains over it,” he said. “All the time
my father was dying I was at the bedside making copious notes.”
Live, Love, Die
