Nurturing the Creative Life

I didn’t attend the New York SCBWI Conference this past weekend. Yes, it’s true. (Sometimes you’ve got to nurture your creative life and get down to writing. Plus I was just at a 10 day VCFA residency…).

Sara Zarr was the keynote speaker at the SCBWI Conference in New York, and I hear she was absolutely inspirational! She spoke about how to live a fulfilling creative life, even if you aren’t published. It was the speech she had always wanted to hear when she attended SCBWI events. I wasn’t at the conference, but the following link is an excellent in-depth account of the keynote speech and Zarr’s advice to keep you motivated and in touch which why you started to write in the first place. Go read it!

    I posted some of my favorite quotes from the weekend on my blog:

    Thanks, Ingrid, for sharing Sara’s talk with your readers. I’m sure others will get as much from it as I did.


  2. I’ve heard so much about this wonderful speech — wish I could have been there to hear it in person!
