The Saturday Writing Quote — McKee on imagination

“Lean back and ask: ‘What would it be like to live my character’s life hour by hour, day by day?’ While memory views whole chunks of life, imagination takes fragments, slivers of dream and chips of experience that seem unrelated, then finds hidden connections and merges them into a whole.”

— Robert McKee, screenwriting teacher and author of Story
