Words for Writers Wednesday: We are Addicted to Story – Quote by Jonathan Gottschall

“We are, as a species, addicted to story. Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories.”

– Jonathan Gottschall


Write with Heart,

  1. Love the quote! I’ve been running stories through my head since I was at least four years old. As a kid, I thought everybody did that. One day, I discovered my mom didn’t. I was dumbfounded. What in the world did she think about all day? Now that I’m a mom I know, but I’m still playing stories while trying to remember such unimportant things like the time to pick up my kids from school 🙂
