Plater: a proper writer...

"It's about listening. And writing it down. If you stop listening and you lose that curiosity about the way people speak and the way people behave, then you stop being a proper writer. I am constantly coming across little tales in the paper or in life. You put them away in the bank for later. Eventually they will turn up, by which time you forgot where you found them to begin with."
