I could use that!

Actors and writers share many commonalities, not the least of them being a consistent awareness of experiences as potentially useful for their creative endeavours. 

The 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!"

A 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.”
