The Clues To A Great Story

I'm still revising. Still. Revising. *deep breath in...slow breath out* But I can see the finish line. Thank God.

I have no post for you today, but I do have this Ted Talks gem. It's chock full of great stuff about story telling. Fair warning: there is kind of an inappropriate joke in the beginning, but after that it's all great stuff. If you don't want to hear the joke, you can read the transcript and skip it. The rest is totally worth it.

Andrew Stanton: The Clues To A Great Story

Enjoy!

Good luck with those revisions. I'm doing first round edits on Stalked by Death, the sequel to Touch of Death.

Good luck with edits. That is the best part right? Oh wait, never mind. :-) I am not published yet, maybe having a publisher on the other end would make it more enticing?

Great post. Sometimes I think the revising will never end. And then, it does. Waiting on line-edits for my pirate story. The last, I hope.

Seriously - I'm so with you. I thought revising was going to kill me. But I'm here to tell you that there IS life after the millionth pass. I finished last week. Yay! Good luck to you! :-)
