Writers, Keep Up The Good Fight!

Last night’s Fiction Addiction reading ended on an inspiring note. In fact, it ended on several inspiring notes and those notes comprise the famous Rocky theme song.

One Story editor, writer, and stellar ukulele-player Hannah Tinti lead a rendition of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger.” She was joined by fellow readers Karen Shepard, Ben Stroud, and Douglas Watson, along with some enthusiastic audience participation. So the next time you need some help breaking through writers block, or need some encouragement to keep you pounding away at the keys like they’re slabs of meat in the back of a butcher shop, play the video below and KEEP WRITING.

Note: The poor film quality is a disservice to the power and beauty of this moment, and for that I humbly apologize.
