Download E-books Ein Haus mit vielen Zimmern: Autorinnen erzählen vom Schreiben (edition fünf 27) (German Edition) PDF

Ich schreibe, additionally bin ich Schriftstellerin: Wenn es so einfach wäre, gäbe es die Geschichten in dieser Sammlung nicht. Ist Dichten das große Glück, ein großer Kraftakt - oder beides? Wie entstehen Ideen, aus welchen Situationen und Begegnungen schöpfen Autorinnen ihre thought? Wie finden sie ihre shape? Und wie ergeht es Schriftstellerinnen im Literaturbetrieb?

In den Erzählungen, Essays und Gedichten dieses Bandes lassen sich die Autorinnen beim Schreiben über die Schulter gucken. Sie entwerfen Geschichten zu dem Thema, beschreiben die Beziehung zu ihren Figuren, besingen ihre Arbeit mit der Sprache, denken über die Wirkung von Worten und Geschichten nach und plaudern aus der Werkstatt der Büchermacherin. Sie äußern sich über den Beruf, mit dem sie sich ihren Lebensunterhalt und bisweilen auch Ruhm verdienen, und über die Hürden, die zu überwinden sind, wenn sie sich als Frauen, die schreiben, treu bleiben wollen. Humorvoll, selbstkritisch und geistreich und immer unterhaltsam gewähren sie Einblicke in die Arbeit von Autorinnen und das Verhältnis von Schreiben und Leben.
