Back on the blog chain, Kiddies! Did you perhaps come here from Terri’s blog? Are you perhaps headed to Mary’s blog (after reading mine of course)? I’m really excited about this one! Michelle started it out and so picked the topic which was…
Share a favorite poem, quote, joke, anecdote, or anything of the sort that deals with writing, writers, the publishing industry, or the other strange and unusual tidbits that belong to our little world.
Yay linkspam!!!! Yay for being early so no one
stole used this yet!
which is hysterical and pretty much how my stories get written!
And here’s a link to part of an interview with Bob Moresco who wrote the script for the movie Crash…he’s got some great advice for overcoming writer’s block.
Then there’s the obligatory John Green writing thing, in which John proves himself as awesome as I could ever hope to be with his writing group and shows his brother (and us) a day in the life of a writer. (sidenote…I can’t help but picture a group of my QT writer friends having pretty much this same convo…and I KNOW I’ve had many many many many of these with the (ex) Roomie)
And saving the best for last… In honor of commencing the rewrite of doom for Reapers here’s a great link to Jackson Pearce’s vlog entry: Revising Is Cake
Sorry this is all videos, but I promise they’re all well worth it!!! And for those of you who can’t watch the videos or don’t want to, I offer up only one quote. I keep it on my closet door across from my bed so it’s the first thing I see when I wake up and the last thing I see before I fall asleep. Unfortunately, it’s attributed to pretty much everyone, so I can’t give proper credit.
..forgive me for going all deep on you, but it’s the best quote I’ve found for writing in a long time, even if it’s not supposed to be.
"It’s the silence between the notes that makes the music."
