Explaining The Quote-Scott Fitzgerald (2 min read)

“Writers aren’t people exactly.

Or, if they’re any good, they’re a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person.”

-Scott Fitzgerald


I am going to break this down the best way I know how, into two parts.f-scott-fitzgerald-9296261-1-402

“Writers aren’t people exactly.”-In my opinion what he is trying to say here is that writers don’t consider themselves as one persons as they have the ability to adapt their opinions.  The ability to transform oneself into another in order to write the best story possible in regards to the subject at hand.


“Or, if they’re any good, they’re a whole lot of people trying so hard to be one person.”-Talented writers tend to illustrate multiple opinions or views in their work.  This gives the reader  different dimensions and interest because they’re constantly trying to figure out how the writer is going to react next.  When a writer emulates different and sometime contradicting opinions, this has often kept the readers intrigued and in turn making them “any good” in Mr. Fitzgerald’s simple yet complex words…

PS-I just started watching Z The Beginning Of Everything and I absolutely love it!  Great acting and a beautiful southern setting.  I highly suggest spending a Sunday on the couch binge watching it!
