A Pep Talk from Author Libba Bray

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. 

Go watch it. Six minutes 12 seconds of awesome.

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."

Thanks, Libba!
