At LTUE writing conference, James A. Owen gave a masterful speech that I found exceptionally inspiring and encouraging. Gratefully, I had my little podcast recorder, so I captured this awesome story. My only regret is that I didn’t catch a photo of the drawing of the dragon given at the end of the speech. It was the kind of picture that would have been discouraging to see (as in, ‘I’ll never be that good’ king of thing) if it hadn’t been for the deeply moving message he gave about simply drawing lines and choosing where they go–and never giving up. It was an incredible work of art, drawn in two minutes.
And by the way, you’ve GOT to check out his book on this subject, Drawing Out the Dragons. I’m reading it now. If you like the speech (and of course you will), you’ll love the book.
