ICYMI: Neil Gaiman offering some #AmWriting #WriteMotivation

I LOVE this speech.

I LOVE Neil Gaiman.

And I want this speech for all those days when that little negative voice screams at me. If you have those days too, please, revisit this speech, listen to his words! He speaks the truth!

  • It’s OK not to know what you are doing!
  • “If you don’t know it’s impossible it’s easier to do. And because nobody’s done it before, they haven’t made up rules to stop anyone doing that again, yet.”
  • Failure and mistakes are a MUST! It means you are doing something. And something is good.
  • Enjoy what you write!
  • Make Good art!

I hope if you ever need some cheering up, or a swift kick in the butt to curb that negative voice that screams at you from time to time, you will remember his words. If not, google them, come here to my site and look up the #WriteMotivation thread, or memorize the key points. Whatever you do, NEVER GIVE UP!



  1. Ping from Rebekah Loper:

    okay, video has been found on youtube and marked to be watched later. IE: when I’m not at work, lol!

  2. Ping from leigh caroline:

    Agreed. Some quotes from that video are probably going to end up on my inspiration poster I’m making for my writing corner. 😉
