You know how sometimes you watch dancers on TV or on stage and you think that if only you grew up in a city, or had scads of money for private lessons, or started studying at the age of three, you could have become a professional? (Oh, shut up. It could happen.)
That’s how this talk felt. I would have LOVED to take a workshop like Lee’s as a kid. To spend a whole week, or a whole semester, talking about books and creative characters and meeting other kids who wanted to be writers? Paradise. In fact, as soon as I can figure out how to disguise myself as a 13-year-old, I’m signing up.
