How to Read Literature Like a Professor by Thomas C. Foster #3

"One of our great storytellers, country singer Willie Nelson, was sitting around one day just noodling on the guitar, improvising melodies he’d never written down, never heard in quite those forms. His companion, a nonmusician whose name I forget, asked him how he could come up with all those tunes. “They’re all around us,” old Willie said. “You just reach up and pick them out of the air.” Stories are like that, too."

Stories really are like that. You just make them up as you see fit. The trick is getting paid for them.
