It takes a tremendous amount of passion to do innovative things every day – and if there's anyone that has that passion, it's publishing legend and editor-in-chief Jane Pratt of xoJane and xoVain (both Say Media properties). At her talk at SXSW yesterday, Jane wowed the crowd and lit up Twitter when she shared her hard-won Secrets of a Publishing Renegade.

Among the revelations onstage were the news that Hilary Swank has optioned the rights to play Jane in a movie about her life, the magic happens outside your comfort zone, and nobody likes you (even Drew Barrymore). Some other crowd favorites during the show included:

Very inspiring talk by @janepratt, love her lesson to her writers which we all should apply to ourselves #SXSW twitter.com/aclwood/status…
