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 has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.

    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.

    Am I the only person who never gets tired of inspirational speeches?

    …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.
