A blank page is like an open road– full of opportunities. ~ Cara Perciaccanto
I had the pleasure of listening to Terry Kay present at a writer’s seminar in Sylva, NC this past weekend. The sage author was full of helpful tips, witty banter and poignant one liners. The audience was sad to learn this would be his retirement speech, no more after our last class. When he signed his book for me, I told him I hated to hear him speak for the first time at his final speaking engagement. He said he was tired of hearing his own voice, and after seventeen books, there was little left to say.
I thought I’d share some of his quotes that stuck with me.
“I dont’ write to tell a story; I write to discover one.”
“If someone expresses faith in you, you have an obligation to try.”
” Every writer has a little bit of rogue in their soul.”
“Forget the rules!”
