Marlan Warren on Finding Inspiration for Her Storytelling

Author Marlan Warren believes her creative process for storytelling is like most other writers - she is always writing in her head, constantly inspired by the world around her. Warren believes everything has a story, and after writing for so many years she now feels like she is a magnet for unique stories. Warren may not use all of the story ideas to write full length novels, but keeps them on file for future use. In this clip, Warren shares the story example of her unique experience with new neighbors when she moved to San Francisco. What started out as a sad event was ultimately a story about community and rejection, which are two very universal themes.
