For SCBWI Conference attendees & the rest of us….

“IRA GLASS ON STORYTELLING” , animated by David Shiyang Liu 

This clip is worth keeping as a periodic refresher. YMMV, and that’s okay, too.

  1. I love this! Thanks for posting it, Joy. I feel like I’m always in that place, even as I improve. When is good enough, good enough? When a publisher says it is? Even then, not continuing to get better is boring.

    • I agree Lisze. To be a creative person means continually growing, evolving, and being willing to soak in something new every day.

      I think it also means knowing when it’s time to stop and walk away from something, say “enough!”, and move on to something fresh and new. It is possible to out-grow an initial idea. Sometimes you need to work it through to discover that, and look at it realistically. Brave and smart are the souls who admit this, because out of the experience will come new (and probably) better ideas.

  2. Hi Anna! Many thanks!
