I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did but people will never forget how you made them feel.
You can’t write all the time. You have to eat and sleep and read. Oh – and walk the dog – oops excuse me for a bit…..
Sorry, back now! Where was I? Oh yes, you can’t write all the time. Sometimes you get asked to talk to people about your writing. This is one of the surprisingly delightful pleasures of a writing life – sharing with readers – young and old and in between – the way the detailed work of storytelling happens. And it’s work where adventures are guaranteed!
It is also wonderful to meet with fellow storytellers, wherever they may be – in schools, libraries, conferences and festivals – and find out what inspires them and discover how they wrangle the challenges of courage and discipline and what matters to them as fellow explorers in worlds of imagination.
I am a highly experienced speaker and workshop facilitator – at home working with people of all ages and in all kinds of places. And always very happy to be invited to talk books and other wonders.
What you learn today, for no reason at all will help you discover all the wonderful secrets of tomorrow.
