It's our job to be curious


“Our job as writers is to be as curious as a child, to see things for the first time, and to never assume. We must always be willing to surrender our idea of the story to allow the larger story to emerge. We are seeking to understand the nature of things, the underlying forces at work.” – Alan Watt

A Canadian author, comedian, actor, lecturer, and screenwriter, Alan Watt teaches a summer creative writing workshop at UCLA and lectures on writing across North America, speaking at such wide-ranging venues as the USC Business School and various maximum security prisons. 
 
 
Alan Watt
In 2002 he founded the L.A. Writers' Lab, where he teaches writers how to write the first draft of their novel in three months, and then in 2011 he founded a publishing company The 90-Day Novel Press to help authors who write books on how to do that get their works published.   If you fit the profile, look it up – it just may be the publishing house for you.
