The remarkable and hysterical Libba Bray recently posted this video pep talk over on Instagram.
I was laughing, and then nodding along at Libba's wisdom:
"As writers, we're always kind of struggling with art versus commerce."
"For me, someone could give me the most commercial idea in the world, and I would run that sucker into a ditch of weird. Without even trying."
"We have to be the writers we are."
and what really, as writers, is a victory.
And then, we should all, like Libba encourages us to:
"Go make that awesome thing you're making. And make it as only you can."
