When Uncleweed is on tap for a speaking engagement I make sure not to miss it even though I’ve seen him do over a dozen talks in the years I’ve known him.
Today he was talking about the process from idea to publication while sharing his personal journey surrounding his Letters from Russia series. I wasn’t live blogging his session as I wanted to pay attention and focus on his message, delivered as he stood before a packed while sporting a smoking jacket.
I did however jot down some of his quotes on Twitter and John Biehler snapped some photos so I’ll share those now.
“I came across a ticket that was $420 to Belize. I was like ‘BUY’ … I wonder where Belize is?”
“If any of you have read it, it’s a big long story and there’s a lot of war and a lot of peace…”
“If you snip the kite string will it soar higher? No it will tumble to the ground.”
“80% meditation, 10% execution, 10% inebriation.”
“What makes a work important is giving it an audience.”
