Inspiring commencement speech from Wellesley High School.
This is not only true for high-school graduates, but also very much for new writers. I don't want to know how many new writers emerge every across the country, trying to get their stories on paper and into the bookstores. The message is the same as in the video: You are not special, but you might create something special.
You are what you create. Write the story to have it written, not to sell it. Sales will come, if you do it right.
