There Is No Magical Formula, one-muse gal, Eileen Goudge
Another New York Times bestselling author, Eileen Goudge, delivered a keynote at the conference, and since I was enjoying a meal, I didn’t take a lot of notes. But I did find her story engaging and her words wise. She speaks of writing like someone who truly lives a writer’s life. Here are a few choice quotations to inspire you:
You can court many muses, but marry only one.
It’s not a hobby; it’s not a part-time job.
It’s about finding time to do all the other things that get in the way of my writing.
There is no magic formula. There is only hard work and the willingness to take criticism.
