This is a video I came across about two years ago…? Yeah, about two. Three? Probably three.
Anyway, I saw this just when I was starting to get serious about writing, when I first started this blog (the pre-wordpress days), and when I was still in the middle of planning Deception. This video was made by Kaleb Nation, before he wrote Harken, and I still go back and watch it all of the time because it’s a good inspiration to me. In fact, every morning during the Deception days, I would get up at 5:30 in the morning, watch this video, and write for an hour before getting ready for school. It’s one of many things that kept me going through 125,000 words of my first book.
Seriously, you just need to watch it. If you know what it’s like to try and take on the task of writing a book, even if you’ve only written a chapter, this is the most relatable thing ever. I’ve probably watched it… fifty times by now? A hundred. Probably a hundred…
My challenge for you? Try to take something away from it. Even if you don’t write novels, even if you aren’t writing right now, try to take something away from it to help you write later on. Comment what you think!
Also, throughout the summer I’m going to be expanding my posts into more inspirational things and tools for writers, as well as a few other things to try and help you all in your writing as well. That said, the posts will vary in length (at least that way I can get something out everyday). If you have any ideas for writers, anything you might want to share on my blog, I’m definitely open to anyone who wants to do a guest post!
As always, good luck:)
Thank you for reading, and don’t stop writing!
