“The Best Book Ever”

High expectation is a writers enemy. It puts so much pressure on the writer and can cause writer’s block because the writer is scared to make anything less than perfect. This short by Lev Yilmaz demonstrates this viscous cycle in a witty, humorous way.

Yilmaz later, gives amazing advice on how to conquer that expectation, in a way that I never thought of before. In this clip linked here (between 1.17-2.42), he suggests that one should set out to make the most rubbish piece of work they can, thus cutting out all pretensions and allowing you to be free. Hope this clip and piece of advice helps any struggling writers out there, or at the very least put a smile on your face. Have a great Saturday folks.
