    Book review: Conversation-Sinfonietta

    Book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu This book review of Conversation-Sinfonietta by Jean Tardieu, is part of my “A play a week” reading challenge. I aim to read 52 plays in a year, and I’ll review every single one right here on the blog! A symphony of conversation It’s a script meant for staging a basic conversation as if it was a choir singing together. This means a few repeated lines between the characters, who are named by their tone of voice. The script for Conversation-Sinfonietta suggested placing the actors in accordance with how you would place singers in a choir set-up. (The image below does not correspond with…

    Book review: Do androids dream of electric sheep?

    This is my book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep by Philip K. Dick. Book review of Do Androids Dream of Electrical Sheep I borrowed the book from a co-worker, who also reviews books (in Danish) in this laidback podcast LæsDen.dk – check them out if you speak Danish! I had confessed that I hadn’t yet read some of the older sci-fi works, so I ended up with this in my hand. Apparently, this is the novel that became Blade Runner, which I had heard of before. Summary of Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep This summary is taken from the blurp on the back of the book.…

    Forfatter: Drop formaliteterne og skriv!

    Drop formaliteterne og skriv Er du forfatter eller forfatterspire og synes du det er svært at komme i gang med selve historien? Måske går du meget op i at skrive det ’rigtigt’ fra starten? Drop formaliteterne – og skriv! Jeg har ofte oplevet forfattere (flest forfatterspirer), der går meget op i om de gør det helt rigtigt. De stiller spørgsmål omkring skriveprogrammer, formatering og linjeafstande. Før de overhovedet har fået formuleret en karakter eller et plot. Før der er en historie at skrive ned. Lyder det som dig?

    Research som forfatter – hvad er vigtigt?

    Research din bog – men hvad er vigtigt? Hvis du er forfatter eller godt kan lide at skrive, er du sikkert stødt på et problem i stil med ”hvad tjente en belgisk smed i 1746?”.

Jeg er som læser tit stødt på bøger der er rige på detaljer, fordi en forfatter har researchet deres emner. Nogle gange kan det dog også tage overhånd, og plottet forsvinder i detaljer og beskrivelser af autentisk fransk bestik fra 1890. Det er ikke alt læseren har brug for at vide. Men hvordan finder du ud af,…
