Our stories come from our lives and from the playwright's pen, the mind of the actor, the roles we create, the artistry of life itself and the quest for peace.
I was an English-literature major, and that's all about stories and narratives.
I'm definitely caught up in the Kool-Aid of true-crime stories.
I love the smell of a theater. The old rooms and the carpet and all that stuff. I love to tell stories. Even before I was doing music, I saw myself as a director. So most of my songs come in a play form, you know, where there are characters and stories, so I like to go beyond just the song sometimes.
As long as I can remember, I've been writing - first poems, then stories, and by my early teenage years I was also in love with sailing.
One of the recent love stories I enjoyed was Bhaskar's 'Bommarillu.'
I wrote a lot of poetry that was based on stories of the sea and I was really inspired by that.
And it's a human need to be told stories. The more we're governed by idiots and have no control over our destinies, the more we need to tell stories to each other about who we are, why we are, where we come from, and what might be possible.
I love love stories, no matter how dark.
I can't seem to help writing love stories. I definitely crave romance. When I was young, I craved romance in books, but I didn't want to read just romance - love plays such a big part in our lives, it shouldn't be cut out and restricted to its own fiction.
Les Miserables is one of my favorite stories.
When reality television really hit, I just had a backlash towards reality. It seemed like a cheap way to make a product. And then when music reality and 'Idol hit,' I just didn't watch it, it seemed novelty. And of course the story of 'Idol,' this is one of the greatest stories in television history.
