Writers are dreamers, creatives and believers of the impossible.

They have a reputation for following the beat of their own drum and tend to view the world through what people call “rose-tinted glasses,” however, we like to believe writers view the world through what can only be called “storytelling glasses.”

And this is why our Quote of the Day comes from Regional Engagement Manager for USA Today Network and Amazon best-selling author Buffy Andrews:

Writers see the world differently. Every voice we hear, every face we see, every hand we touch could become story fabric. — Buffy Andrews

Writers have these “storytelling glasses” because they see the world as a place of endless possibilities, a place where there are endless stories just waiting to be discovered.

But, you have to be receptive to these stories, so put down your phone, take off those headphones, and look around.

And remember writers: Always be aware of your surroundings, have your ears ready to listen and most importantly, keep your mind wide-open for those stories that are just waiting for you.

You won’t regret it.
