the business of storytelling...via stephanie laurens

I was chatting to my husband the other day about writing, and about art in general, and how, to my mind, it's about making an emotional connection with another person.

In reading a book that makes you sigh, hearing a song that makes you cry, seeing a painting that makes you feel, when you get that visceral reaction, the artist has done their job.  They've connected to your emotions.  You have recognised the human experience, or more specifically your experience, in what they have created.

Long story short, I love love LOVE this cartoon  the faaabulous Stephanie Laurens used as a part of her Key Note speech at the Romance Writers of America awards in Anaheim this last week.  Says it all really.
