If Riley Poole Were a Writer

In National Treasure Riley Poole, the ultimate awkward sidekick, once said: “We pretty much make our living on crazy”. This perfectly describes a writer’s life!! Let’s see what other things Riley says about the writing process…

when you open a blank document to start a new story >>


when you like where your story is going >>


when you come up with a brilliant backstory but your character doesn’t know it yet >>


when writing is actually going well >>


when writer’s block happens, early on >>


when writer’s block happens, later >>


when writer’s block happens, and someone asks how your story is going >>


when you write a cute happily-ever-after and remember it’s just fictional >>


when a plot twist decides to happen >>


when you’re mad at your characters >>


when you have a brilliant idea >>


when your climax is getting a little crazy >>


when you’re wondering what’s supposed to happen next >>


when you’re trying to write something epic and it’s more like this >>


when you’re explaining your story to friends >>


when you’re getting close to the end of your draft >>


when trying to write a romantic scene and you don’t have any experience >>


when you’re trying to fix plot holes >>


when you’re a little too excited about your own story idea>>


when you’re reading something you wrote too late at night >>


when you hang out with real authors >>


when they ask if you’re writing and you’re actually just snacking >>


when another writer asks you for advice >>


when someone says they like your first draft >>


when you suddenly remember you should be writing >>


when you’re trying to choreograph a fight scene >>


when a conversation accidentally ties in with your current WIP >>


when you’re brainstorming with a friend >>


when the brainstorming goes really well >>


when everyone wants to read your book but you’re still writing it>>


Oops, that last one is so me. Bye guys. XD

  1. Haha this post was just about perfect πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Riley is pretty much the best sidekick in any movie or book, because he doesn’t even feel like a sidekick.

    Also, that was too hilarious all the writing references my goodness.

    1. Thanks, Jac, and *gulp* yess to the last one. πŸ˜‚ I found a bunch of shots from the movies and then guessed what would be happening in them if he were a writer, and asked my siblings what they thought on a few of them. XD
