I think the one below is pretty self-explanatory. 😉
I love this TED Talk! The opening solo bit from Liberty City is a powerful message about telling your own story and not letting others limits, limit you. Something that isn’t easy. The world is filled with “Boundaries, shoulds, woulds, and supposed tos…” The only real boundary is the breadth and scope of your imagination. Now THAT is something to remember. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Yes, this weekend we are at Balticon in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and it is their 50th anniversary which means there are a LOT of people here and a lot of great authors. So…from the title, you can guess who one of them was. Over the weekend there are several Q&As and for those of us who didn’t quite make it in to the very crowded rooms, Hamfast42, took some great notes. You can find them here and here but I put a few of the Q&A stories down below to whet your appetite.
From his Introductory Remarks:
From his more informal Q&A:
This week’s video is not specifically writing advice, but I definitely wanted to hear this and so y’all are getting it too. Considering the popularity of the character in the latest Captain America: Civil War I have a feeling a lot more folks are going to learn about T’Challa.
Yup, I’m having a bout of writing anxiety. I even took 3 naps this weekend to avoid working on my writing. How is THAT for anxious? But I had a great video conference call with a couple of other writers. Not specifically for this but more as a way for us to motivate each other generally, share our knowledge, skills, and push us towards our goals. The discussion reminded me of a time a few years ago where I was “sprinting” (doing 15 minute writing jaunts) every day. That year I had almost 30 short stories completed. The following year was my “most published.” Since then, I think the not-writing has lead to anxiety that EVERY WORD must be worth something, must mean something, and that is just too much pressure so my productivity has plummeted as my stress has skyrocketed. Thus, today’s quote.
