Editing: John Green is a Nerd's Dream

I recently found Ricki Schultz's blog, and she had a link to John Green's vlog on editing. It stems from NaNoWriMo, which seems out of date, but lots of people are saying that March is the new November, so: relevant!

ANYWAY.

This video is awesome. Epically awesome. About revising and editing and sucking turning into not sucking.



Also: John Green is the reason why I don't vlog. I can never be as cool as that. It saddens me, but the first step is admitting the problem.

Triple Awesome! Thanks, Beth!

OMG he's so funny! How have I never seen any of his vlogs (or sadly, read any of his books?)
Thanks for sharing this, I loved it!

Jessica Kennedy said...

That was awesome!

Imagine how long it took him to edit that video!

I apparently love John Green. He's funny. I just recently read Paper Towns. Very nice. I need to read his other books.

Tricia J. O'Brien said...

Woot! He is fabulous, and that was a most excellent take on NaNoWriMo.

PJ Hoover said...

I love this video, Beth! It makes me laugh every time!

Stephanie Perkins said...

Aw, that was awesome as always. Thanks for posting it! I don't know how I missed it. :)

Thanks for the shoutout, Beth!

Yes, the video is from a while ago (hee!) but I remembered what he said about editing, and I had to mention it.

It's funny that you said March is the "new November" because I'm actually "NaNoWriMoing" my second MS this month. (Well, my husband is calling it RiNoWriMo, but you get the idea...)

I agree about the vlogging - he and Hank are pretty hard to top!

Glad you found the blog - and congrats on your recent signing!

Cheers,
Ricki

Very funny, Beth. Thanks for posting. I'm going to link to this from my blog. I've been talking a lot about both discipline and revising lately, so this is perfect.

Katie said...

Ooo good! I need a good vlog on editing! thanks!!!

Solvang Sherrie said...

I love that vlog, but I haven't read any of his books yet.

And I'm with you on the vlogging: pretty sure I couldn't be that cool:(

Lenore said...

Yep, we'll all sadly never be as cool as John :(
