So you want to write a novel?

A big thanks to Rik over at Uphill Writing for featuring this brilliant little clip on his blog.  It captures what many non-writers think about the novel writing industry in a funny, intelligent way that will tickle anyone’s funny bone.  Enjoy!

Kudos to dwkazzie at YouTube who uploaded the film, and the people at XtraNormal where you can make your own animated movie.



  1. I love that one! There are a couple clips done in this same style about dog agility too.

    • I am very tempted to try one of my own, if only there were more hours in the day! That and I would need a brilliant idea… and a great script… oh well.

  2. I loved this video the first time I saw it.

    Spot on!

    • It’s perfect for all those ‘writers’ out there who actually do think that way!

  3. That’s great.

  4. Thanks for the quote and ref, Jodi! Always appreciated!

    • Anything for a buddy – thanks for getting me off the hook for not having a topic for my post!

  5. Hi there,

    I’m the author of the video, and I just wanted to thank you for posting it on your blog. I’m so thrilled that you and your readers got a kick out of it!
