Writing is one thing, saying something in your writing is another.
Who speaks to you? And in what way?
Plays, poems, books, films, television, theatre and musicals; each have the ability to influence, inspire and infiltrate our lives – in their own way, at different stages throughout, maybe once or many times over.
Actor Orson Welles once said to a British friend “we have now acted in theatres, on radio, in films and on live television – they can’t think of anything else, can they?”
A new generation will always bring forth a new adaption of literature, and along the way make a new discovery for themselves and others, which means, furthermore, that ‘old’ books and ‘old’ plays and ‘old’ poems are always kept new. Of course new work is produced as well and that’s where we stand as writers today, creating and evolving…
‘A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.’
