Di Stephen King, maestro dell’horror, coming out to film a new version of the novel Pet Samatary of the 1983, already he arrived on the big screen thirty years ago. precious occasion to dive back into his writing manual On writing, published by Sperling & copper, densely autobiographical (including the serious car accident 20 Years ago). The author of IThe Green Mile Loredana Lipperini as he writes in the preface to the 2015, It gives us in this book all the ingredients you want to write us. "Only if you are honest in the story you can be good writers, and here is the heart of the book. The essential ingredients, apart from this, are only two: master the basic principles (vocabulary, grammar, Elements of Style) and remember that you can become good if you are already decent, but - make yourself the peace of mind - you can not turn into one decent writer scalzacane and turn into an exceptionally good writer while. therefore, honesty of the story is the first factor, "says Loredana Lipperini. For King "everything can become story, The red skirt of poor classmate and clumsy and leftovers rotting lobsters in tablecloths arriving in laundry. Because the stories are buried fossils, fragments of other worlds that happen through the hands unexpectedly: writing is not spring water that gushes from the rock, but mud kneaded ". And as pointed out by King Lipperini is just a dowser archaeologist who "works on those fossils and establishes links: converges distant things, and thus valuable, coming from an intuition, and grow up to make a world that at the beginning it's just a phrase, an image, A perfume". On Writing It is a precious book, because it offers the perspective of a master of popular literature which is also a man of letters and a connoisseur of life because he has explored paying in person lights and shadows: "Writing evil is not just a matter of bad syntax or poor sense of observation: He writes bad when we stubbornly refuses to tell stories about what people really ". In fact, people "really scared - writes Lipperini – and what King does in his books he brings into the room where lies the darkest of trauma, what really incurable. Because on the table, look, is the shape under the sheet, what are you, when you die, but what are you now, the cesspool of your heart. The writer, sostiene King, It is simply a filter between what we can internalize without danger and what we must get rid ". Writers are born or made? You have hopes, you who try your luck in the literary contests? "Writers will become, He has always supported King. The childhood trauma and children who seek blueberries and are cut by a not make a writer train. An absent father or violent is not a writer. It takes talent, of course, but not enough. It takes work and study - notes Loredana Lipperini – It takes attention. It takes awareness that writing does not flow like spring water ". Handle with care toolbox, the language and its artifices, and read, everything that happens to you in sight. Nothing less and nothing more.
