More Words of Wisdom from Caroline Cooney

Ms. Cooney was a delightful keynote speaker!  Some more favorite quotes from her speech:

-“Most kids yearn to be a hero.” 

-“Research often gives you all the clues you need to write your action.”

-"Who gets published? The writer who writes constantly, and takes criticism well.”  

And one personal favorite, which was met with much laughter:  “My first 8 books were never published.  I’m not going to be a sympathetic shoulder if you tell me your first novel hasn’t sold.”  :-)
