(It is allergy season and I've been hit pretty hard--watery itchy eyes, the sniffles, and lack of desire to stay conscious. Allergies have wiped me out. So today, instead of writing an allergy medicated induced post, I'm going to toss out some of my favorite writing advice videos for you to enjoy. Enjoy the videos while I search out another box of tissues).
Right now, this is where I am at in my writing--frustrated. I have a heck of a time writing endings that are coherent and leave my readers feeling joy and completion. I've been editing my last twenty pages of my WIP for the past four or five months (what a dork, right?) but I know once I nail the ending, make it perfect, I, as a writer, will be all the better for it.
Stephen King's book On Writing is one of my favorite books on the writing craft. If you've not had a chance to read it, I highly suggest you do. He is forthright and honest. He tells you like it is. Also, there is a section in the book about his life, how he became a writer, the process, and how he was almost killed by a drunk driver--Stephen King, by all rights, shouldn't have lived through that accident. It's a fantastic book.
This video cracks me up! Awesome. A bit of fun for you.
Have a great day, everyone. Write. Write. Write.
And then when you're done with that, go write some more.
I know you want to.
