Neil Gaiman On Writing

Last week I said I would reveal exciting information about the next Jot. I apologize for not following through. There are some lingering conversations and I will save that post for next week.

Today’s post is a video from one of my favorite writers, Neil Gaiman.

Why is he a favorite? Because he knows how to tell a terrific story that pulls you in and never lets go.

The Graveyard Book was introduced to me a few years ago by fellow Weakling Andrew Rogers. It’s the story of a boy raised by ghosts. From the very first line I was hooked –

“There was a hand in the dark, and it held a knife.”  Gaiman, page one, line one,The Graveyard Book. 

The book is both delicate in word choice and chilling. If you are looking for a delicious summer read, I highly recommend this one. Please enjoy the clip below.
