Monica McInerney and self-acceptance

MMauthor_pic-home1

I had the great fortune to hear author Monica McInerney talk yesterday about her new book The Trip of a Lifetime, and writing in general. The one thing that I came away with was how accepting and unquestioning she was with what her imagination chose to create. She seemed to have blind faith in her creative self.
It occurred to me that I am very unaccepting of my own imagination, something I wasn’t aware of until yesterday. This is deadly to writing good, interesting work and something I need to really work on. Fear in general I think can be very damaging to writers, when it paralyzes creativity.

This is the gift of attending author talks- you never know what you are going to learn. So, thank you Monica.
