Big Think is a wonderful source of knowledge, ideas and inspiration. The site features videos, articles and interviews with people who are considered experts or leading thinkers in their respective fields. Art, design, writing, creativity and inspiration are subjects that are widely covered.
Recently, Big Think posted a series of videos entitled How to Write Great Fiction, featuring advice and tips from well known writers. RedBubble is home to a talented community of writers who we thought would appreciate the ideas shared in these clips, but their appeal isn’t limited only to wordsmiths.
The videos discuss the creative process, discipline, inspiration and audience – subjects which are of interest to many artists. There are a number of videos available but here are a few to get you started:
- Jonathan Ames – Compose Beautiful Concise Sentences
- Margaret Atwood – Carry a Notebook at All Times
- Salman Rushdie – Inspiration Is Nonsense
- Walter Mosley – Write 1,000 Words a Day
- Richard Price – Tricks to Writing Dialogue
- Isabel Allende – You Have to Write Every Day
We’d love to hear from writers on the bubble. Do you agree with the advice given? How often do you write? Do you have any particular methods or approaches that work for you? If you could pass on one piece of advice to writers who are just starting out, what would it be?
