Neil Gaiman: An Inspirational Speech (especially for writers).

I was linked this video showing Neil Gaiman giving an inspirational speech to the University of Arts Class 2012, by one of my close friends from my online gaming community. It's almost twenty minutes long, but it is an excellent speech, and for some reason, Neil Gaiman has this almost hypnotic quality that pulls you along.

I'm hoping those writer blogofs out there will appreciate this for the brilliant speech, wit and intellect that Neil Gaiman presents so effortlessly and with such confidence.

Watch, listen and most of all, enjoy :)

    1. Glad you liked it - it is a brilliant speech, and having never seen this guy before I was intrigued (as I always am with authors) as to what he looked like. Seems like a really nice fella.

  6. Great clip. My cat has not been well this summer, and every time I start worrying about him, I think: "Cat exploded? Make good art."

    (He's not quite at the exploded stage yet, and seems to be on the mend, in case you're inclined to worry.)

    1. We have two cats, so yes, I understand and appreciate your cat concerns. But don't forget, they do have nine lives :)
