A long time ago, there was a young man who wanted to be a writer. He wanted to live writing compositions, but he couldn't discover what he had to write.He couldn't come up with any good stories, and it seemed that everything was already written.He became ill and none of doctors could cure him but a wise old lady.
The Wise Old Lady worked as a gatekeeper unbolting the gate for carriages and horses of a ranch. She also had comprehensive knowledge of many subjects. The young man decided to go and visit her.
“If you have the ability to write, there are endless good subject matters. First, stop thinking about yourself, and try to understand a ray of sunlight.”
The young man put on the wise old lady's glasses and hearing aid, and he received and held one of the potatoes that the wise old lady gave to him from the potato patch.
After a while, the potato started to talk about itself.“Imagination is not something you can learn and acquire. You should live in another way instead.”Even though the young man could not be a writer, he could live being involved in the literary world.
