‘Bad Writing,’ a Great Video

One of the things I love about Facebook is the infinite possibilities to discover new artists.  Lo and behold, yesterday I came across husband and wife Vernon Lott and Jennifer Anderson (and sister Gina Lott) of Morris Hill Pictures, Lewiston, Idaho.  They did a fabulous video called Bad Writing, which can be viewed for free on Vimeo this month.  It features a whole host of amazing writers talking about beginning writers and their own process.  George Saunders and Margaret Atwood and a host of others have some very interesting things to say. 

Check it out! (And I’ll be looking for great things from Morris Hill in the future!)

Thanks for sharing! Sometimes I feel anxious about keeping all my bad poems from high school (what if someone finds them!), but this film reminded me about why I can never bring myself to throw them away when I try.

I like to think that all that bad writing made the good writing possible, you know? That you couldn't get to the good parts if you didn't do all that less-than-good. In that way, you can be proud of them, as they represent a lot of hard work and growth!

Thanks for stopping by!
