An Inspiring Video

My agent posted the following video on his blog last Friday.  It made him laugh.

It made me laugh, too. And in the days that have followed I’ve found myself going back to it over and over. In some strange way it’s been inspiring me to write. I don’t know why exactly. I can definitely relate, though my reactions are a bit more dramatic than hers. In my office there is a lot of staring at the ceiling, then frantic typing, then more staring, then sighing, pushing away from the desk, more staring at the ceiling, more typing. Then the part where I bury my face in my hands and cover my eyes,  so I can’t see the screen… I talk a lot  more too… And not to Quigley, though he sometimes thinks I am.

Still, I think it’s the understatment in this one that makes it funny. Particularly in light of its title: The Excitement of the Writing Profession.

I especially like the “thinking” part. 🙂

UPDATE: Sadly, the creator of this video has changed the settings to “private” so it’s no longer viewable. I might just have to make my own…

Make my own????

    It is the epitome of what we go through, isn’t it? Although I agree with your depiction, and especially the hiding our face in our hands. That was my particular experience last night….

    I keep getting a “sorry, this is private message” when I try to play the movie both in the blog and in youTube 😦 …. is there another version you could post?

      Wow, Joanna. That just happened. As in today or yesterday. I’ve been watching it for days, and now I’m getting the “private” message, as well. 😦 I went back to my agent’s blog where I found it and it has also become “private.” Maybe she got too many hits and overloaded the system. Too bad because it really captured the “excitement of the writing profession!”
