#Inspiration

This Youtube video stopped me dead in my tracks tonight while I was meandering around the internet and trying desperately not to fall asleep.

It shows John  Hodgman (if he looks familiar that’s because he’s appeared on the Daily Show) as he elaborates on his own advice for writers.

From Wikipedia:

In addition to his published written works, such as The Areas of My ExpertiseMore Information Than You Require, and That Is All, he is known for his personification of a PC in contrast to Justin Long‘s personification of a Mac in Apple’s “Get a Mac” advertising campaign, and for his correspondent work on Comedy Central‘s The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

His writings have been published in One Story (to which he contributed the debut story), The Paris ReviewMcSweeney’s Quarterly ConcernWired and The New York Times Magazine, for which he is editor of the humor section. He contributes toPublic Radio International’s This American Life, and CBC Radio One’s Wiretap. His first book and accompanying audio narration, The Areas of My Expertise, a satirical tongue-in-cheek almanac which actually contains almost no factual information, was published in 2005. His second book, More Information Than You Require, went on sale October 21, 2008. His third book, That Is All, went on sale November 1, 2011.

Hodgman was the headline speaker at the 2009 Radio and Television Correspondents’ Association dinner in Washington, D.C.
