Here is my talk for the Ann Arbor District Library's short story contest award ceremony. I was really looking forward to meeting all the young writers (3rd - 5th graders) but we were not able to all be together, of course. Instead the AADL recorded the ceremony remotely, including my talk about my creative process. I was able to sit in my studio and show every step, something I can't do as well in front of a group of people. Congratulations to all the participants and to the winners!
