Opening Keynote: LIBBA BRAY (Part 2)

"Trying to please other people with your story is madness."

"There is no sure thing except the magic of writing what matters to you and you alone."

"What's hot and selling today may not be tomorrow. The only thing you can do is listen to your pages and see what they want to tell you."

Four pieces of brilliant advice from Libba:

1. Be a giraffe.

2. Find the cracks that let in the light.

3. Just say no to the hot pterodactyl boyfriend.

4. "First you jump off the cliff, then you build the wings." (Ray Bradbury quote)

"There is nothing without the leap of faith."
"Honor your work with your honesty."
"I challenge you all to join me in the year of writing dangerously."
