A must-read essay on creative failures

This blog post by Sara Zarr--who I happen to think is one of the most powerful writers of books for teens of our present moment in literary history--about the inspiration that comes from creative failure is powerful and honest and true, just like all of her books. (And for the record, I don't have anything to do with the publication of said books. I'm just a fangirl.)  It's a guest post on the blog of Nova Ren Suma, also a young adult author and a pretty darn spectacular source of inspiration herself!

So, go! Read! Appreciate! Soak in the wisdom! And get inspired.....


  1. Thanks for posting this link, Molly! Love Sara Zarr so much, and love her rooted honesty. My favorite part of her post is that the point of creating isn't about control, or saving oneself embarrassment, or preserving an image. Such a sound reminder!

  2. That is a great post and so poetic. Thanks, Molly!

  3. Every time i come here i see something very new.
