She looks briefly at your handwriting, then at you with an empty face as a doughnut. When I was reading, the protagonist (Francine) began to develop as someone different from the original writer, although we probably all share some of her experience. It' not a time-honored storyline.

A Writer is told almost like a guidebook column: a series of inserts that show how a certain author has achieved this point in her work. For her, I really began to take root if she continued writing during her studies (what we experience in this theoretical listing of things that "might happen" while "you" become a writer).

About " How to become a writer " (1985) by Lorrie Moore

The fact that every writer was discouraged in many ways by his decision to "only" become a writer before he eventually became one has always been the object of many stories. Among us, rich in all kinds of careers you can imagine, today our societies have biased themselves against typing and typified it as nothing more than a ridiculous way of becoming a story-teller for those who have been fantasizing about it ever since.

Composed by this assumption are the concerns of an up-and-coming writer as to whether he is really suitable for composition or not, whether he has the meat and bones of a writer - fears that are enveloped in self-doubt and a low self-esteem. Lorrie Moore's 1985 brief "How to Become a Writer" deals with these themes not only with a remarkably sharp sense of humour, but also with the imaginative feather of a clever writer who knows only too well how to master speech and how to use it in an amazingly unconventional way.

Maybe the first notable feature of this novel is that it doesn't look like one. According to the name, Moore's work usually follows a similarly user guide approach to the second character (i.e., using the phrase "you") - just like commands voice-over and typing in a range of inter- episodal imperatives. As a rule, Moore's work follows a similar theme to a user-instruction.

But at some point in the middle of the narrative we are at last made aware of a certain character's name - Francie, the "you" in history - and the conflicts she is confronted with have at last become clearer and more vivid. Like with the narrative's primordial sound, humor is at its best; in fact, Moore began her tale by implying that becoming a writer does not start with being one:

" In keeping with this motto, Francie decided to take a diploma in children's psychological science in which she could easily put into practice her babysitter abilities, which she found satisfying for the folks around her, paired with what her passion desired, namely telling tales. But on her first morning she sat in a cup of coffee, an incident that aroused in her an "urge, a deception" to be a writer.

Here comes the conflicting aspect, which is exacerbated by our character's experiences: Francie used to think she was alienated when others repeatedly rejected, if not mocked, her works, which they perceive as pictorial, supple and vigorous, but without a feeling for action.

Francie tends to blow up all her protagonists from the beginning, a more narrative example of how her work is not so much focussed on the action but on the struggle - the same can be seen in the way Moore has built her narrative. Thus Moore's intention can be seen as that of warners not to hide the handicraft of the letter with its deep-rooted convention; it urges us not to shy away from disobeying regulations and simply to simply type without being so burdened by the critique of others.

At the end, the reader witnesses what we first perceived as Francie's frailty, but what is actually her strength: her ingenuity. Moore, Lorrie. "Like a writer? "Moore, Lorrie.
