    Ditch the formalities and write!

    Are you a writer or an aspiring author? Do you find it difficult to get started on your story? Maybe you want to make sure that everything looks right from the beginning? Ditch the formalities – and write! I’ve often encountered writers (mostly the unpublished ones), who care an awful lot about ‘doing it properly’. They are asking questions about writing software, formatting their text and other technicalities. Before they have even thought about a plot or a character. Before there is a story to write. Does that sound like you? Maybe this post can help you to just get started on the actual writing. Being correct or making excuses?…

    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?”.

    Book review: The Comedy of Errors

    The Comedy of Errors by William Shakespeare The Comedy of Errors is a Shakespearean classic and here are my thoughts of it. I wouldn’t necessarily call it a book review as it is a play of a certain age. But as a part of the Rory Gilmore Reading Challenge, and me being a thespian, I just had to read it! Summary In short, The Comedy of Errors is a typical twin-comedy-drama and very Shakespeare. Two sets of twins are separated by a heinous storm. Two of them end up in one place, the other two somewhere else and herein lies the premise of our plot. The pairs of twins then…
