I recently watched another amazing movie last week. And some of you may have probably seen this. But for those who don't, this is quite a very interesting movie. The main characters of this movie are the very famous Antonios Banderas, and Jonathan Rhys Meyers. (wiki is attached to his name just in case people don't know him or find him familiar)
So why am I recommending this movie to WORDclerks and to you aspiring writers out there? Well, this movie has a very good impact when it comes to the perspective of a writer - in this case, Antonio Banderas. You see, if you become a writer and has probably published some books but with little to no success, you will then face the biggest hurdle of all writers - yep, the writer's block. In this movie, Paul (Antonio) has already lost hope in writing new stuff and he was about to give up when Jack (JRM) intervened. He encouraged Paul to not give up in writing, and then showed him the reality of life and how to make it a reference or a topic to write about. In this case, he writes about how he struggled to become a writer and eventually became an alcoholic because he thought that he has lost everything - his wife, family etc.
The movie, however, had a very interesting twists of events at the end and I did not see that coming. Trust me, you will love this movie.
Can you relate to Jack? Like, almost giving up on your writing career because you think it is hopeless? I sure can. I have thought about it many times. So I decided that I won't make writing as my career, but rather than a hobby instead.
