Letters to a Young Writer by Colum McCann

“The whole point of good literature is to make newness durable. You are creating alternative time. You are making vivid that which did not exist before.” Colum McCann, Letters to a Young Writer

Letters to a Young Writer by author Colum McCann comprises fifty-two short texts that give some practical and philosophical advice about various matters of authorship – like creating characters, developing a plot, the terror of the white page, the first line and many more.  For me, each of the small texts was highly motivating and full of inspirational lines, which I would like to write down on a BIG mood board and hang it up above my favorite place to write (so currently this would be above my sofa).

A big recommendation for everyone who is loving the written word but also fighting with it from time to time.

I wish you a wonderful week! Have a creative one :)!

I plan to go on winter vacation for one week in the beginning of March. With a little bit of help from you, it may be even a small vacation from blogging on My so-called Luck. So I am looking for up to five people who would like to create one post as my guest bloggers. The topics are completely open and up to you: Do you wanna make a city guide for your favorite town? Did you see lately an artist who really inspired you? Is there a band whose music plays a big role in your life? Have you discovered a fantastic new recipe? What looks do you like currently? You see, there is a lot to blog about. Don’t hesitate to participate because you think you can’t make it – we can schedule your post and I will support you wherever it is needed :). So please feel free to contact me with your blog ideas and make my vacations really free!

I wish you a wonderful start into the new week! Maybe it’s time to make your own plans for your next vacation?
