To all you writers out there

This is the third part in a four-part series from This American Life's Ira Glass, and it can be applied to any hobby/talent you're working toward. You should probably go ahead and watch the rest of the series too.

Hey Lisa! I didn't know you had a blog, yes! I loved this clip. I am a little embarrassed to admit that I tried my hand at writing a novel this summer and haven't done much with it in a little while because like he said, I knew it was kinda crappy! He has some really cool insight, it inspired me to keep on trying. I would love to read some of your stuff sometime! I'm sure it's awesome.

hah--welcome! That's so awesome you've been writing! One of my favorite parts of the video is when he shows a clip of himself EIGHT YEARS into his profession, and it's still so awkward. I just love that.

I also like the part where he says I have good taste. :)
