Favourite Scene(s) vol.3 SPOILER ALERT!!!

If you haven’t seen the movie One Week starring Joshua Jackson and directed by Michael McGowan then DO NOT WATCH THIS CLIP. If you have then go for it. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, then go watch the movie. If you don’t care then watch the clip.

I love this series of scenes because it collects the main message from the film (and concludes it) but doesn’t take away from the preceding story, told over 100 or so minutes. Plus, I find it inspirational.


You’re Not Ready To Be A Professional Writer. Or Are You?

Picked this up in the twittersphere earlier from Jon Winokur and his @AdviceToWriters account. It’s a great article written by novelist, screenwriter, and game designer Chuck Wendig.

He outlines things you need to know about yourself in order to survive and thrive as a person living the writing life.

Writing as Training

“When we think about our creativity in terms of training, we begin to understand the importance of working despite our moods.” – from, The Sound of Paper by Julia Cameron

Basically, she’s saying, “Write you fool! Write!”. Or something like that.

Favourite Scenes vol.2

Why I Like It:

The music (perfect song selection) combined with the action combined with the feeling/tone is amazing. It is explosively subtle. The bad thing is they cut the last part (or the first part of the next scene) where Finn runs after her in his bare feet and flags down her cab. Intense.
