Julia and Julie: A motivational movie for writers

August 9, 2009

Loved the movie Julie and Julia. It’s not just about a woman taking a year to cook all of Julia Child’s recipes. It’s great inspiration for writers, and publisher’s too. Julia Child took years to finish her book, Mastering the Art of French Cooking, and endured numerous roadblocks and rejections from publishers before it went on to become a classic and perennial bestseller. Julie thought her life was going nowhere until she decided to write a blog detailing her cooking Julia Child’s book in one year. The movie is so much about doing what you love and writing about it. So, writers–and readers–don’t be discouraged. Keep on keeping on! Get your book out there!
