How to write an award-winning bestselling first novel | Nathan Filer | TEDxYouth@Bath


Since I’m in student teaching purgatory (see my journey at, I’ve had little time to focus on my writing. But that doesn’t mean I’m not still a writer! All my thoughts eventually end up in my idea pile. I’m constantly observing, gleaning and researching as I go through each day.

I stumbled upon this little gem (the following video) and wanted to share it with you. In honor of NANOWRIMO, I want to encourage you to keep writing. Don’t stop. It was NANOWRIMO that helped me write my first break-out novel. I’m sad that this is the first year since 2008 that I’ve not even attempted to participate in November Novel Writing Mania!

If you’re a struggling writer (and what writer isn’t?) then you’ll find inspiration here.
