Okay, so dude, I went to see Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol a week or so ago. And not only was it a fast-paced thriller (just what I like to see), but it taught me a thing or two about writing.
Or at least the kind of writing I want to do.
I need to think bigger--and I'm not talking like Imax bigger, though I did see the movie in Imax.
No, I'm talking THINKING BIGGER. More outside the box. More impossible.
As an author who has a book out and one on the way and hopefully the third the year after that, searching for and finding that next idea (that next series) is stressful and difficult. There are all kinds of worries and variables.
Everything feels too small.
And now that I've seen Mission Impossible, I know why.
I need to think bigger.
Have you seen MI? Or another movie that shifted how you look at your writing? Which one?
