Writer’s Block: If you could be a guest on any talk show, which would you choose and what would you talk about?

Well who wouldn’t pick Oprah? lol as for what to talk about, well that’s easy: writing.

There are a lot of reading programs out there. These are excellent and needed programs, yet all reading takes is an imagination and a book. Writing… writing takes outlining, plot, structure, grammar, spelling, setting, character analysis, betas, reviews, editing, and an imagination and a book. The book is important. Stephen King said in his book ‘On Writing’ that if one doesn’t have the time to read than one doesn’t have the time to write. The book is where a writer learns what works and what doesn’t. It’s how they discover their own voice and style. A library to a writer is like a goldmine and that’s why we need to keep them as an integral part of any writing program. Continued reading also helps other writers grow from the reviews they get on their work.

Yes, reading is important in a lot of ways, but writing is so much more. Writing teaches us how to reach others through the words, just the same as they reach us when we read. The tools of writing also help in everyday life in a myriad of different ways. Words on paper are perhaps a thing of the past but words, methods of communication, will always be around and writing -no matter the topic, fashion, or method of deliverance- will always be equally as necessary.

  1. Couldn’t agree more about the importance of writing.

    Also, I wouldn’t pick Oprah! I’d pick Adam Hills In Gordon Street Tonight, and I’d probably spend the whole segment/show in growing embarrassment at my inability to utter even one word because of the combination of Adam Hills and cameras. I don’t think you could make a situation any more shy-inducing than being in front of a camera with someone I admire (except maybe if I were naked…). But if I found the courage to speak up I’d talk Australian music with him. It’d be awesome!
