Another random writing quote this week to round out your weekend.
If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster.
You may have heard of Mr. Asimov, robot-story-writer extraordinaire, and originator of the “Three Laws of Robotics“, who wrote the short story collection on which the movie “I, Robot” was (loosely) based. He also wrote a number of books called the “Foundation” books which, buzz has it, are being made into movies.
I thought this quote was a fun commentary on the writer’s inherent existential purpose: to write. If you had six minutes to live, what would you write?
