Margaret Atwood On Writing Tips

Margaret Atwood On Writing Tips

Take a pencil to write with on aeroplanes. Pens leak. But if the pencil breaks, you can’t sharpen it on the plane, because you can’t take knives with you. Therefore: take two pencils. If both pencils break, you can do a rough sharpening job with a nail file of the metal or glass type. Take something to write on. Paper is good. In a pinch, pieces of wood or your arm will do. If you’re using a computer, always safeguard new text with a ­memory stick. Do back exercises. Pain is distracting. Hold the reader’s attention. (This is likely to work better if you can hold your own.)...

Keyframe

Keyframe

keyframe - noun. A moment that seemed innocuous at the time but ended up marking a diversion into a strange new era of your life—set in motion not by a series of jolting epiphanies but by tiny imperceptible differences between one ordinary day and the next, until entire years of your memory can be compressed into a handful of indelible images—which prevents you from rewinding the past, but allows you to move forward without endless buffering. There are moments in my life that I refer to as being magical. Little snapshots of memories forever embedded in my mind that I will never forget. ...

Lost In The Pages

Sometimes I feel as if I am lost in the pages of a book about my own life, filled with the jaded ramblings of a madman. The world not as it seems as arcane symbolism seeks the truth of higher meaning.

The Book

The Book

For years I have dreamed of writing a book. So far I have written about three of them, but abandoned the projects about halfway, regarding them as failed attempts to write a whole book. Sadly, as of yet, I have yet to complete one. The book is an archaic rite of passage for any modern writer who, for whatever reason, has yet to be published in bound paper form. Just because one has yet to be published has to bearing on whether or not they are, in actuality, a writer.
