Be inspired!

I am trying to complete Cal-raven’s Ladder, which is a sort of Pilgrim’s Progress tale alongside an exodus story, without any “inspirational speech to the people scene.” There have just been too many of those scenes in adventure and fantasy films.

Having said that, if you need inspiration today, I recommend you start here:

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet departed the Patheos network in order to escape click-bait advertisements that were offending him and his readers. He will re-launch Looking Closer at lookingcloser.org soon. He is the author of The Auralia Thread, a four-volume fantasy series that begins with Auralia's Colors, and a memoir of "dangerous moviegoing" called Through a Screen Darkly. He teaches creative writing and film studies; speaks internationally about art and faith; served as Writer-in-Residence at Covenant College; and is employed by Seattle Pacific University as a project manager, copyeditor, and writer.

    Speeches translate better visually than in books, generally. But you’re right – for every St. Crispin’s Day speech (or Braveheart speech), there are dozens of clunkers.

    …and if it doesn’t end with “NOW BRING ME AN ALE, BOY!” I will stop reading.

    Wow – I am nothing if not totally, utterly inspired.

    God bless YouTube :)

    Now, you’ve just got to add to the zeitgeist and put one of those into Cal-raven Jeffrey.
