When I went to Ursula K. LeGuin’s book signing for her new book Lavinia (reading my signed copy now) I told her “Your words open my words.”
It was a simple and quiet thing to say. There was still a long line behind me, but she looked up and our eyes met and she asked me my name.
Reading her novels always helps me when I hit a writing wall. I will always be grateful to her for her beautiful books.
If you want to treat your ears and heart, take a few minutes and listen to her read the last chapter of A Wizard of Earthsea
