Writing school is all around us if we just open our eyes and pay attention.

The teachers at this writing school may seem unlikely, but part of our job as writers is to always be observing and learning. When we do, teachers like Taylor Swift, Bob Marley, Stacy London from ‘What Not to Wear,’ Lorne Michaels from SNL, and philosopher Marcus Aurelius, don’t seem so unlikely.

And if you’ve ever thought that writing a blog post that goes viral would be the ultimate success – don’t miss the last 8-10 min of this episode.
