Jo Knowles (& Maurice Sendak) on Living Your Life

By Cynthia Leitich Smith
for Cynsations

For the last couple of days, I've stepped away from my YA fantasy manuscript in progress while Greg Leitich Smith reads it to offer his insights and feedback.

I took advantage of that opportunity to catch up on the kidlitosphere and came across this inspiring post by the glorious gift to the world that is author Jo Knowles.

Check it out. Take some time with it. Watch the embedded video interview with Maurice Sendak. Ponder Jo's thoughts. Grab a tissue or three, just in case.

It's absolutely required reading/viewing. Again, here's the link:
Live Your Life: A Theme and Challenge for 2013 from Jo Knowles. Peek: "A desperate plea to anyone who would listen: Don't wait until you are aging to fall in love with the world." Source: Carrie Jones.

Thanks for the link. Just what I needed to hear today. And now I'll grab another tissue.
