Yes, I love to share my TOP 10 Lists from Evan Carmichaels YouTube Videos.
Today, it’s Stephen King. If you are a writer, aspiring author or a creative of any type, I think you will love his book On Writing. It’s the one that has influenced me most in my life. I bought it as a gift for my son when he was 15 and showed an interest in writing. He read it and then said, “Mom, you need to read this.” I did, and it’s been my bible ever since. Today I share Stephen King with you. If you click on the link, you can watch the video.
And now, here’s Stephen King’s Top 10 RULES FOR SUCCESS
- LOVE WHAT YOU DO
- BE YOURSELF
- EXPLORE NEW IDEAS
- THE GOOD IDEA STAYS WITH YOU
- LOVE THE PROCESS
- LEARN FROM REJECTIONS
- LOOK FOR IDEAS YOU ENJOY
- FIND YOUR CREATIVE PROCESS
- PASS SOMETHING ON
- TELL GREAT STORIES.
The ones that resonate with me are #2 Be Yourself. I’ve finally gotten over myself and write what I want. Which leads me to #5 Love the Process–even when you’re stuck like I’ve been all day today. UNTIL…that magic moment when the plot reveals itself.
And I also find motivation by reminding myself that my job is #10 Tell Great Stories.
If you have a favorite, share it. And check out Evan Carmichael’s channel. You won’t be disappointed.
Have an exciting, exhilarating, and creative week.
