Resources for Writers By Mary Jaksch At times, we need to fall in love with writing again. The video below will inspire you. Did you enjoy this video by Ira Glass? I loved it! Writing can be frustrating, but it can also be exhilarating. Ira really explains so well what happens. You have an idea. And then you try writing it down. But you can’t quite capture what was in your mind. And because you can never quite capture the idea you had in the first place, you feel frustrated at times. The videos in this post are an antidote to frustration! Watch them and you’ll fall in love with writing all over again. The video below is from the movie The Hurricane. I found it very moving. In the following scene from the film Freedom Writer, there’s a wonderful passage about how every writer, no matter how humble, can “…turn on a light in a dark room.” Lastly, below is the amazing video by author Neil Gaiman. Enjoy! Which video made you fall in love with writing again? Let me know in the comments, okay?
