A Few Videos To Help Spark Your Creativity


Regular readers might remember the posts I’ve done that explain the trials and pain I’ve had, discovering how to incorporate social media into my writing life—3 years of what I have to call Tribulation—“…from Latin tribulare ‘press, oppress’, from tribulum ‘threshing board (constructed of sharp points)’, based on terere ‘rub’.

For the past few months, I’ve found Google Plus worth my while—sometimes frustrating but usually accountably valuable.

One particular value is finding links to other blog posts and articles that I can feature here.

A number of people linked to a TED curation called Carlton Cuse: 6 talks that help me create.

Mr. Cuse is a screenwriter and producer, probably best known for his U.S. TV series Lost.

As a writer, I not only combine pleasure and work when watching movies (and, “good” TV), I quite often remember Francis Ford Coppola saying, “As I grow older, I realise that I always wanted to be a writer.”

It’s even been said he prefers, when considering movies to make, to read a short story rather than a screenplay

So, whether you’re a writer or not, the following six videos can all, in creatively different ways, fire your creativity.

I’ve had the first one here before but it’s so damned good it deserves another viewing :-)
