A friend shared this video with me. The man speaking is Neil Gaiman, the author of many books including CORALINE and THE GRAVEYARD BOOK (CORALINE is also a movie, if it sounds familiar to you). I am not a big fan of his books because I prefer to read other things--and that's okay--but I am a tremendous fan of Mr. Gaiman. He's kind and generous with his time. He always encourages others to create. I try very hard to follow in his footsteps.
So here, on the first day of 2016, is Neil Gaiman's wish for us.
Happy New Year, Kid Authors!
