Still Writing

“Everything I know about life, I learned from the daily practice of sitting down to write.”From the best-selling author of Devotion and Slow Motion comes a witty, heartfelt, and practical look at the exhilarating and challenging process of storytelling. At once a memoir, meditation on the artistic process, and advice on craft, Still Writing is an intimate and eloquent companion to living a creative life. Through a blend of deeply personal stories about what formed her as a writer, tales from other authors, and a searching look at her own creative process, Shapiro offers her gift to writers everywhere: an elegant guide of hard-won wisdom and advice for staying the course. “The writer’s life requires courage, patience, empathy, openness. It requires the ability to be alone with oneself. Gentle with oneself. To be disciplined, and at the same time, take risks.” Writers—and anyone with an artistic temperament—will find inspiration and comfort in these pages. Offering lessons learned over twenty years of teaching and writing, Shapiro brings her own revealing insights to weave an indispensable almanac for modern writers.Like Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird, Virginia Woolf’s A Writer’s Diary, and Stephen King’s On Writing, Dani Shapiro’s Still Writing is a lodestar for aspiring scribes and an eloquent memoir of the writing life.

“I have to get lost so I can invent some way out.”
Still, writing was what saved me. It presented me with a window into the infinite. It allowed me to create order out of chaos.

Quién se iba a imaginar que uno podría llegar a deberle tanto a las 29 letras del abecedario.

course, there’s a huge difference between the scribblings of a young girl in her journals—I would never get out from under my bed if anyone were ever to read them—and the sustained, grown-up work of crafting something resonant and lasting, a story that might shed light on our human condition.

конечно, есть огромная разница между каракулями молодой девушки в ее дневниках—я бы никогда не вылезла из—под кровати, если бы кто-нибудь их прочитал-и длительной, взрослой работой по созданию чего-то резонансного и прочного, истории, которая могла бы пролить свет на наше человеческое состояние.
