Writers’ Wisdom

I recently wrote about how much music, and especially the music of Nick Cave, inspires me when I’m writing, and when I started looking for this week’s WW quote, I came across this, so it must be some sort of kismet.
I honestly love this man — his words, his music, his voice, his look (even though he doesn’t have that mustache anymore), his everything. Le sigh.

It’s the most beautiful compliment, the greatest reward.
Art should always be an exchange.”

Nick Cave


You can also read about that time I met Nick Cave. It was a pretty boss moment.
