It’s okay to suck. Really. – Steve Almond

Overheard at Conversations & Connections Conference in Washington, D.C. April 16:

“We all feel like failures. All this week I woke up at 5 a.m. in a pool of my own anxiety. Most of writing lies in outlasting your own self doubt.”
— Keynote speaker Steve Almond, author of the story collections My Life in Heavy Metal and The Evil B.B. Chow, among other publications.
