Ive been watching these motivational videos on YouTube and theyve helped me in beating my writers block and absolutely destroying my procrastination. Even if most of the movie clips involve sports and outdoor activities, the positive messages are still relevant and strong. These videos may not work for everyone, but it wouldnt hurt to at least try and watch if you are stuck on the first page or are absolutely uncertain of your writing career. Below are two videos that I love to watch every other day:

THE GREATNESS WITHIN

UNBROKEN
www.youtube.com/watch?v=26U_seo0a1g

Two important quotes:
"Fear kills dreams. Fear kills hope. Fear puts people in the hospital."
"You can fail at what you dont want, so you might as well take a chance at doing what you love."

I will post more videos in the same thread in the near future.
