I signed up for a writers conference called “The Muse and the Marketplace,” which takes place this weekend in Boston. I’ve never been before. I wonder what it will be like to be surrounded by hundreds of writers? I’m curious and excited.
Thoreau had plenty of advice for would-be writers; one of my favorite quotes is from his journal of 1841: “It is vain to try to write unless you feel strong in the knees.”
