My plane back to Minneapolis will take off soon. I just finished this year's Pacific Northwest Writer's Conference and, like always, there were so many great things that happened.
For now, I'll just mention one thing: meeting published authors. There's nothing like getting a bit of time to talk with people face to face about their books and how they made it. One author mentioned that it took her eight years and five books to make it. Now it is her full time job.
I'm currently on my third big creative project. The first was a short YA fantasy novel. The second was a children's play. And the third is a fantasy novel set in the same world as my first project.
It's all too easy to grow impatient and to forget that many of the people that have made it have put in twice the time and number of projects.
How many big creative projects (plays, novels, screen plays) have you completed? Have you meet any authors that have inspired you with their story? What was the one thing that inspired you?
With all the travel back and forth from Washington and Minnesota I've had to cut back on commenting on everyone's blogs, but I will be back soon. : )
