Sci-fi Creatives Evening

Righteous Anger by Lynda Williams

Righteous Anger by Lynda Williams

Yesterday I attended a Sci-fi Creatives evening (advertised in my last post), featuring Lynda Williams, author of the Okal Rel saga. Judging from the laugher, head nodding, and everyone-participating-conversation, a good time was had by all. Lynda is a hilarious, candid speaker, and I think any writer would benefit and be inspired by her enthusiasm for her own and other people’s creative works.

The highlight for me was a casual bit of advice given toward the end of the night. It wasn’t anything I hadn’t heard before—in fact, it’s something I always strive to live my writing life by, yet it was much needed encouragement: Write the stories you want to write, that you care about, are passionate about. And while Lynda didn’t add this, she just as easily could have; it was in every bit of her attitude: Have fun!

So yes, if you ever have a chance to take in a Creative SF Evening with Lynda Williams, do so. And if you fall into her Okal Rel universe before I do, let me know how you find it—the books sound amazing.
