Where Do You Get Your Ideas From?

Ursula K. Le Guin is one of my favourite writers. The question: “where do you get your ideas from?” is the starting point for a wonderful essay and meditation on this question.

Please follow the link and read it – I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Even if you don’t want to spend the time reading it, follow the link anyway, and you’ll be rewarded with the most stunning photograph of the 86 year-old author: simultaneously wise and mischievous – the sort of human being it would surely be a privilege to know and to count on as a friend.

(hat tip, once again, to Nicholas Whyte for drawing this essay to my attention)

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
