Neil Gaiman on Writing

Tell your story. Don’t try and tell the stories that other people can tell. Because [as a] starting writer, you always start out with other people’s voices — you’ve been reading other people for years… But, as quickly as you can, start telling the stories that only you can tell — because there will always be better writers than you, there will always be smarter writers than you … but you are the only you.

I’m very, very, very busy last days, earning money, actually, and very, very tired after coming home. That’s why I do not write that much.

Most famous light bulb moments just come to me in the morning which is not good b/c in the morning I’m really in a hurry.

However. Here you can hear the whole Gaiman’s philosophy on writing.

A warm welcome to all my new readers, followers and likers!

5 Things that Make My Life Much Happier

This is such a very special list! It just came to my mind this morning on the bus, and I don’t even know why. But who cares? The important thing is I love it!

1. Mr. Right, Family and Friends

Thank you for all your encouragement and kindness. It means so much to me. Oh, and yes, Mr. Right. I still keep it in my mind: “Best years are ahead of us.” Here in the world is no one who I can love more! One day I’m going to write about us, our pretty story. It will be a novel. Bestseller, I suppose.

2. Diaries, Mails and Snail Mails

Since I’ve learned to write, I had a diary – my silent friend and rememberer. And since I’ve learned to write, I also had a pen pal whom I could write. Later when I was around thirteen, the internet connection didn’t really exist (I mean, it was not as spread as nowadays), so I wrote snail mails. Plenty of them! I truly loved writing letters, and so my friends did. And that’s why I was like Harry Potter – I received plenty of letters every day. Nowadays I have got only one pen pal for snail mails but still it is fun! We just pretend that the internet doesn’t exist!

3. Books and More Books

When I was a child, I didn’t read, or I don’t remember it, really. The family bookworm was my older brother while I was a writer. Writing letters, diaries and magazines for my friends – that was my BIG hobby. I fell in love with books later, so then I decided to study literature at university, and now – well, the passion and flame lives inside me, as you can see. By the way, it’s such a pleasure to share my ideas with you, folks! Finally, I have a happy space where I write, what I really like, and it’s just amazing!

4. My Own Fairy Tale

My sweet, little and funny creature lives in a nutshell. I love it with all my heart and I’m so sorry I can’t tell you its name or the story line. Butone day I’m pretty sure you’ll read about it. Oh, and I’m going to illustrate it, of course.
