Setting your story free

I’ve heard countless debates and discussions on how novelists come up with their stories.  Some came across their story in a dream, others at the top of a mountain, some were inspired by events in their own lives, or in the face of a stranger at a bus stop.  There are as many ways to come up with a story as there are stories, but I heard a wonderful quote from Michelangelo today which sums it up for me – writers find stories and their stories find them.  Here it is, read it, enjoy it, let it roll around in your mind…

“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set it free.”
