I love this quote by Douglas Adams from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: “The way we tell stories should not be by repeating the past but by remembering it.” It is one of those quotes that can change your life. It’s an idea that has been around for a long time, but seems to be going mainstream. You may have heard of it, but you probably haven’t heard it for the first time.

When we think of narrative, we tend to think of the “author” telling us a specific story, but really it’s the story itself that we’re remembering. Most of us have our own stories to tell, and we don’t always remember them, so we make up stories to tell ourselves. Narrative is the act of remembering the events of a story, so it’s the act of writing our own stories. It is a way to remember what happened.

Narrative can be very important to us (if it goes unreported). I think my favorite narrative is the story of the two brothers growing up, who grew up to be a very different person from each other. The second brother was a man who never wanted to be around his brother much, and his brother was a man who wanted to be around him. And so, they ended up becoming very different people, due to this.

I think that the act of writing our own stories is something that we do to remember what life was like, and I think it can be very important to us if we don’t tell our own stories. I’ve heard that people who write their own stories have more empathy, and that is something that I think we lack. It’s not only the act of writing, but also the act of telling our own stories. We need to be able to share that.

This reminds me of the old movie “The Breakfast Club”, where a writer named John J. Oakes writes a book about his life, and it ends up going national on CBS, and then he dies. It was a great movie.

In my own case I was so focused on trying to figure out the story of a guy who had a bunch of weird powers, that I forgot about writing and telling the story of my own life. While I can’t deny that such self-awareness might be important, I’m always fascinated by what these people who are so passionate about their stories do in the face of the difficulties that come from being themselves. If we just let ourselves be ourselves, that’s what we’ll have.

I’m sure many of you have read or heard similar quotes by other writers too. I think one of the biggest is the “You are the sum of your experiences” quote by Stephen King. A lot of what he wrote was about his own life, and in a lot of ways he wrote about the past, present and future of his characters from what he saw in his own past. As a writer, though, he also always stressed the importance of writing what someone else wanted to write.

If we let ourselves be ourselves, we can write what we want and not worry about the consequences. That’s one of the best parts of writing, is that we don’t have to worry about whether other people will like us or not. We don’t have to worry about whether other people will like us or not.

Thats how the whole ‘writing is about the way you want to present yourself in the world’ thing comes to be.

He also said that the whole writing thing is about doing “what you want to write” and not what the other person wants you to write. And, since the whole writing thing is about doing “what you want to write,” you can be what you want to be at any given time.
