We interrupt our regularly promised post to say, Listen to this TED talk:
Brené Brown: The power of vulnerability
Amazing. Freakin' amazing. We know these things to be true, but when you hear it, you can use it in a new way. Especially if it ties into your book. But your book comes from your life, too. So we really have to
know what we're doing. embrace not knowing what we're doing? Something like that.
In order to do it.
Kind of like what M.T. Anderson once said at a past SCBWI Summer Conference: "The experiment is the piece of literature, not the preparation for the piece of literature."
So with life!
P.P.S. With thanks to Irvin Lin at Eat the Love for leading me to this talk, after an amazing weekend of Irvin and AJ hosting me in SF. Love you guys so much.
