Good writer is good reader
Reading is also an important part of writing. It' where we authors usually get to fall in love with words. We' ll find a textbook or textbooks that have personalities as realistic to us as our brothers and sisters, or an environment that is so realistic that we have the feeling that we can take the teacup of our protagonist off the canvas.
There' s so much to be learned from the literary readings that every writer must have in his arsenal: syntactic sentences, characters, story sheets and story telling dramas. If you feel disheartened or bogged down, it can be useful to ask other authors for help and encouragement. Whereas it was very useful to read about dragon in secondary schools (hello, Dragon Rider of Pern!) to help me write, it did help me to write novels by authors, about text.
I' m sharing three volumes that I always turn to when I'm bogged down, lost, or just want to talk to others. When I was fifteen, my mother purchased this work for me in a second-hand bookshop. The Lamott course will cover everything a prospective writer needs to know, such as the story sheet, the psychological aspects of characters and the processing of it.
She' s doing all this with a sober, funny grasp of humour and generously spraying the chapter with my own stories that have led me to be her good mate. It is like a stroll on the shore with a dear boyfriend, where you can't stop smiling and have the feeling that you've learnt everything.
It is a simple, contemplative reflections on the scriptural processes and their relationship to Buddhism. To write does not have to mean to hit the face against the keypad or to groan with pain on the ground. Sharing some of her own experience as a writer in Taos, New Mexico, with jokes from her Buddha schoolmaster.
That part of Goldberg's messages that struck me most was her suggestion to handwrite in funny textbooks. Select a too serious notepad and you run the chance of doing dusty or arrogant work if your typing is more Lisa Frank. Handwriting also links you more specifically to the act of the letter itself.
That' s not a textbook, from a technical point of view. It' a collection of advices from Cheryl Strayed, aka Dear Sugar, the writer of Wild. This was taken because it was very helpful to me to learn to be a better man, or just a man in the day.
That'?s what it'?s all about. A favourite of mine is from the Rumpus writer Elissa Bassist, who wrote to Strayed about the letter "like a girl". Hopefully these three recommended books have been as inspiring as I am. Being a good reader is one of the most important characteristics that a writer can have.
