8 reguli pentru a scrie o povestioara

Soooo…. cum cautam eu alte carti pe care sa le pun pe lista ‘de citit’, am dat peste aceste reguli interesante de a scrie a short novel, cuprinse in cartea Bagombo Snuff Box: Uncollected Short Fiction:

  1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
  2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
  3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
  4. Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action.
  5. Start as close to the end as possible.
  6. Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them—in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
  7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
  8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To hell with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.

Imi cer scuze ca sunt in engleza, dar traducerea cred ca ar pierde esentialul celor spuse de autor.

Acestea fiind spuse, ca sa inchei tot in vorba lui Kurt Vonnegut, de acum inainte ma voi compara pe mine cu mine.

    Cu placere, si imi asum aceasta caracteristica doar pentru ca le-am postat aici. Daca ceva nu merge bine, te sfatuiesc sa apelezi la adevaratul lor creator, pe care, aparent, nici eu nu-l cunosc, ca nu-i scrie numele nici unde 😐
    Anyway, spor la ce vrei sa intreprinzi 😉
