We are, as a species, addicted to story. Even when the body goes to sleep, the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories.

Jonathan Gottschall, The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human  (via thatkindofwoman)


This is an excellent book! I teach parts of it in both my Cognitive Science of Fiction class and my Writing Young Adult Novels class. Definitely worth a read if you are interested in the science of story!

I believe in everything Jen Lynn says. She’s a doctor, don’t you know. 😉
