Hjælp til vordende serieskabere, del 3

Ovre på ComicMix har John Ostrander (nok bedst kendt for at være manden der gjorde den invalide Barbara Gordon til computergeniet Oracle) skrevet et fint indlæg om det at skrive.

What does a writer do?

I did an interview recently and I was asked what advice I could give to someone who also wanted to be a writer. I get asked that at classes, lectures or seminars and I always answer by asking that question.

It’s not a trick question, although some people seem to think it is. Generally, I get answers like:
a) writers create stories
b) writers make up characters
c) writers make up things

It’s actually a lot simpler, more basic, and far tougher than all of the above.

What does a writer do? A writer writes. We don’t simply think about writing or talk about writing or imagine ourselves writing, although every writer I know does that and, in many cases, prefers to do that. It’s a hell of a lot easier than actually doing the work. However, if that’s all you do, then you’re not a writer. You’re a wannabee.

Og der er meget mere … smut derover og læs, hvis det interesserer dig.

Ulf Reese Næsborg er født i 1971, og har læst tegneserier siden da, hvilket vil sige at han har læst stort set samtlige albumudgivelser i Danmark indtil starten af 90'erne, hvor han begyndte at læse overvejende udenlandske tegneserier. Læser mest amerikanske tegneserier, både fra 'de to store' og fra Indie-udgivere. Yndlingsforfatterne er Grant Morrison, skarpt efterfulgt af Alan Moore, men han har også et blødt punkt for Brian Michael Bendis, J. Michael Straczynski og Brian K. Vaughan. Han er manden bag tegneseriesiden og som sådan den man skal kontakte hvis man har generelle spørgsmål eller kommentarer til siden.

En tanke om “Hjælp til vordende serieskabere, del 3”

  1. Det minder lidt om Heinleins regler for hvordan man bliver science fiction forfatter

    1. You must write.
    2. You must finish what you write.
    3. You must refrain from rewriting, except to editorial order.
    4. You must put the work on the market.
    5. You must keep the work on the market until it is sold.

    :) lettere sagt end gjort, men manden har jo ret :)
