Great post! I especially love the idea of treating people like stories.
As a writer, I am constantly inspired by the things and people around me. But more than that, I am nosy and curious and I love listening to people and learning about them and their stories.
We are all so very different and we’re each the protagonist in our story, and it is incredibly interesting to see and hear how others view themselves, the people around them, and the world.
There is SO MUCH to learn just by listening.
