When I hear or read about a book or video that interests me, I jot down the name on a scrap of paper and tuck it away for future reference. I am usually working on a story or novel and I don’t have a lot of free time. Sadly, some of these scraps end up in the garbage.
Fortunately, J.K. Rowling’s commencement speech at Harvard did not.
Her words spoke to me on a very personal level. She is such an inspiration as an author and human being.
If you haven’t watched it, I recommend setting aside 20 minutes and doing so. You won’t regret it.
