Taming and Training Your Creativity to Write Abundantly

The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore


If you haven’t heard of the Oscar nominated short film The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, take a moment to watch this trailer.

I fell in love with the film from the first frame and can’t get the fascinating images out of my head.

It is available for purchase on iTunes ($1.99 for the movie or $2.99 for HD version).

With beautiful images, heartwarming characters and captivating story, it’s a film which everyone will enjoy. The literary theme will especially appeal to writers.

For more details, as well as behind the scenes videos, go to the movie’s website. One of the videos on their site provides an insight into the people who inspired the characters and how, in the aftermath of Huricane Katrina, ‘the curative power of story changed lives.’

P.S. The first issue of the Creativity’s Workshop Newsletter will be sent out on Wednesday. If you haven’t signed up for it yet, now is the perfect time to do so by clicking here!
