On writing, doubt, and If I Stay
One of the best things at Leaky was hearing novelist Gayle Foreman talk about writing “If I Stay.” It started with an idea that wouldn’t quit, and that she didn’t know what to do with. She almost threw the idea out, because she didn’t think it was strong enough to support an entire novel.
But instead of dismissing it, she opened a word doc, titled it “Why not?” and began to write.
It grew into “If I Stay,” which is a hugely successful YA novel, also about to be released on the big screen.
I don’t know an author, artist, or creator who doesn’t face doubt. We forget who we are. We dismiss our talent and underestimate our skills. We are afraid to try, even though we have succeeded time and time again in the past (or have failed, and then learned from it.)
So I like the story of a successful author who almost threw away a million dollar idea. Of Harry Potter first being scribbled on napkins on a train. Of the everyday risks we take in order to create.
Because they are so, so worth it.
In case you don’t know what Spoonies are, we are a group of people who have chronic illnesses or disabilities. Or, as we like to say, we are Chronically Awesome :)
Our name comes from the “Spoon Theory” which is a simple way to explain the challenges of everyday life when you have a chronic illness. You can read more here.
We hope you feel better soon John! fishingboatproceeds
If you were at leakycon this past weekend, you may have gotten one of our handmade business cards for the series, each one custom made by our show’s writer! These babies are unique, so if you’d like one, make sure you catch us at the next con we visit or at one of our events during our fundraiser campaign, which is COMING SOON!
So excited for this series! Let me know if you are looking for any “perks” for the upcoming indiegogo campaign. I would be more than happy to make some nerdy jewelry that you could offer as incentives for people to donate. I could even do commemorative necklaces with the logo or something like that :)
It’s just awesome and important to see shows like this get made. All the luck and love to you guys!
