Inspiring and enlightening talks for authors.
We’re nearing the end of National Novel Writing Month and entering the season of giving thanks, so I thought I’d share a few presentations by writers to inspire you.
These are TED Talks – short (~20 minutes) inspirational talks you can find on YouTube for just about any topic you’d like.
Writing books: Elizabeth Gilbert – your elusive creative genius (author of Eat, Pray, Love)
We’re all creative.
Storytelling: Andrew Stanton – clues to a great story (Filmmaker – Toy Story, WALL-E)
Greatest story commandment is “make me care.”
Poetry: Billy Collins – Everyday moments, caught in time (former U.S. Poet Laureate)
Bugs Bunny is his muse. <smile>
Storytelling (~4 minutes): Joe Sabia – the technology of storytelling
You’ll remember the name Lothar Meggendorfer after this video.
Enjoy the videos! I hope they inspire.
Have a great week!
