Okay, so it's the thing that James Cameron taught me, but that doesn't make as good a title.
I haven't seen the movie "Avatar" yet, but this video shows how much work went into the film.
James Cameron taught me patience. He came up with the idea for this film in 1996. He knew it was a strong concept, but it wouldn't be made in the best way possible unless he waited for the technology to catch up.
Sometimes I feel like I'm in a hurry to get ahead. I usually sound like this:
"Finish this draft, then edit, then beta, then write a query, then edit again, then beta again..."
What's my rush? If I'm writing a good story, it will only get stronger with time.
Does anybody else feel like they're rushing to the finish line without enjoying the ride?
Also, check out Jackson Pearce's vlog chock-full of writerly advice if you haven't already.
Speaking of vlogs, I think I'll be posting my singing one tomorrow if all goes well (meaning if my roommate is out of the room).
Now that I think about it, James Cameron also taught me something else: ships are hawt!
Except for when they sink, of course.
Question: Who thought of this? It's terrible!
