My favorite part of the talk was what he said at the end. He talked about how when he was a kid, he never considered himself a writer. He never "wrote." However, he loved playing with his G.I. Joe dolls and making them act out stories. He would practice basketball, telling stories to himself the whole time. After he became a writer, the way he wrote was to tell a story out loud and type it while he told it. And he realized that he'd been a writer this whole time! There's no difference between telling a story while shooting hoops or acting it out with your action figures and typing it into the computer.
How many kids out there are writers and don't even know it? What a wonderful thought.
