A GREAT VOICE WITH A GREAT VOICE
Just finished Neil Gaiman’s Master Class on the art of storytelling. I’ve savored all the Master Classes on writing, but especially enjoyed this one. I find it brave when a writer speaks the way they write. I will now toss my incomplete ideas on a creative compost heap, so those ideas can rot and feed later growth from the garden of my imagination. It will be so much more interesting than merely filing those ideas away for future reference. I’d never heard Gaiman speak before downloading the class; his voice reminds me of Alan Rickman. (“Turn to page 394.”) I love me a languid English accent. So, even though there’s already a tattered copy of THE GRAVEYARD BOOK in my bookcase, I had to buy it on audible because Gaiman reads it, and I like listening to him talk.
