When a dysfunctional group of unpublished writers accept Hannah into their fold, the last thing they expect is her overnight success. Can these lovable misfits achieve their artistic dreams and avoid killing one another in the process?
Okay, maybe this movie wasn’t a huge success and it was nit-picked by critics, but I rather loved it! Why? Because as an author, there’s so much I can relate to! Stuff like…
- The jealousy you feel when a friend is more successful.
- The guilt you feel from being jealous of said friend.
- How easy it is to allow personal issues to stifle your creative energy.
- The pain of rejection.
- The anxiety of success.
- The humiliation of sitting through a signing where absolutely no one has any interest in your book. (Been there, done that.)
With this in mind, I’m working on a series of blog posts on things writers can learn from the movie. Hope you enjoy!
