Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:
Advice for Writers: drop the Emotionalism, get Real.
“The difference between Emotionalism and Catharsis is Generosity.”
We shouldn’t use our suffering, we should offer it.
The author’s motivation is the most important part of writing: are we offering our suffering from the point of view of, “look at how f*cked up I am,” or is it a way to show others how to move forward with their own suffering?
Elephant is psyched to be working in partnership with Google+ on our new live video series, which features three live videos a week (that can be watched later, too).
Subscribe to our weekly newsletter for our best blogs of the week,
including our latest Walk the Talk Show.
For the first word on our new videos each week: subscribe to Walk the Talk Show. All videos free!
Hangout with elephant on Google+ every Monday, Wednesday & Friday
at 12 noon MST.
