Advice here!

Advice! Advice! Get your free writing advice here!

I found this video posted on Kimberly Derting's blog (if you haven't checked her blog out, you should. She's really funny! Plus, her book The Body Finder is releasing in March 2010, and let me just say, it looks FABULOUS!).

Anyway, she posted this great video that has a lot of great writing & inspirational advice from many authors we all know and love. So, be sure to check it out!!!

I mean, how could you pass up free advice like this...really???

With that being said, I'm off to work on my WIP (you know, while I'm still inspired and not ready to throw my laptop across the room, yet, which never happens, of course? *wink, wink*)!


  1. Oh, thanks for that! Always looking for god writing advice ;)

  2. THis is so funny! I laughed so hard. I want to tweet this.


  3. Thanks for the inspiration! I have a gift for you on my blog!

  4. This is awesome. Some great advice. And so true--Write because you love it and for no other reason.

  5. Carolina - I know. I was so happy to find this. It's truly inspiring!

    Ann - I'm so happy you liked, and yes, it is funny! : )

    V. S - You're welcome, and I'm going to check out your blog right now! : )

    Bethany - Yes, it is inspiring. And, sometimes, we all get caught fuss of trying to get published, find an agent, ect., that we forget that we should write because we love it. Best advice ever! And, so true!

  6. We love Kimberly and can't wait to get our hands on The Body Finder. And thanks for the video--Jackson Pearce rocks!

  7. Lisa and Laura - I'll be the one standing at B&N's front doors (peeking through the glass)waiting for them to open so I can get this book. I considered ordering it online, but I'm not sure the extra day or two it will take for it to be shipped to me.

    Yes, I'm that impatient. And, yes, this video (and Jackson Pearce) ROCK! : )

  8. I loved this video. Such sound advice, takes a lot of stress out of writing.
    Happy New Year.

  9. Great advice. I love the piece that said 'you're the only person your writing has to please'. Isn't that why we write in the first place, for ourselves? If other's approve then it's just added benefit. I'm so inspired, I'm going to work on my book right now!

  10. Thanks so much for sharing this! Loved it! :)

  11. Diane - It does alleviate the stress, doesn't it? I might need to play this for myself every day! : ) Good luck on your writing!

    Eva - Yeah, that part is great! I think so often I find myself hung up on what others will think that i overlook the only person who Jackson did a great job with this video. Good Luck too you!

  12. Daisy - I know, she's coolest! : )

    Shannon - You're welcome! I'm so glad you liked it. It truly is an inspiring, yet funny video.
