Quote: What Would You Write?

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.

~ Isaac Asimov

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?

Happy writing.
