Favorites from the Summer Conference

More from Rachel Vail:

"Astonish yourself. The thing you knew was coming was your first draft."

"Keep learning - not JUST craft, but about your character."

"Be ruthless. Fall in love with your story, not your words, metaphors or characters. Cut what doesn't work...then have chocolate."

And finally:

"Be kind. You're writing for kids. It must ring true, but there's humanity in all of us. We should have hope."
