Overview

WHAT IF? ist das erste Handbuch zum Thema Schreiben, das auf einer praktischen Überzeugung beruht: Die wirkungsvollste und provokativste Methode, die Kunst des Schreibens zu erlernen, liegt darin, spezielle Übungen zu meistern. Alle fünfundsiebzig Übungen für Anfänger und Fortgeschrittene bestehen aus einer knapp formulierten Aufgabe, dem damit verbundenen Ziel sowie zahlreichen Lösungsbeispielen aus der Weltliteratur und von Studentinnen und Studenten der beiden Autorinnen.

Die Autorinnen greifen in ihrem Handbuch ganz konkrete Situationen heraus: Wie fängt eine Geschichte an, wie endet sie? Wann verwendet man direkte, wann indirekte Rede? Wie verwandele ich tatsächliche Ereignisse in Fiktion? Wie finde ich eine Sprache, die sowohl Melodie als auch präzisen Ausdruck hat? Welche Sinne werden beim Leser angesprochen? Jede Übung isoliert ein bestimmtes Element von erzählender Literatur, wie Dialog, Charakterisierung, Subtext usw. Manchmal sollen beim Schreiben zwei Seiten nicht überschritten werden, um den Übenden dazu zu bringen, klar, knapp und direkt zu sein, Weitschweifigkeit zu vermeiden und nicht vom Thema abzukommen. Dieses Buch ist für Anfänger wie für Fortgeschrittene konzipiert, und auf viele Passagen wird man immer wieder zurückkommen. Die Übungen, die kombiniert und abgeändert werden können, und die ausgewählten Textbeispiele bilden einen unerschöpfbaren Quell von Stoffen und Methoden.

Good To Know

Some fun and fascinating out takes from our interview with Bernays:

"I've written a memoir, Back Then, which has a lot of dicey stuff in it. And it's a good read! I'm fixated on how things work and how groups of people work with and against each other. I'm also a passionate liberal, and am convinced that this administration is so business-oriented that it's forgotten to serve the people who elected it. I'm a lifelong Democrat and have voted in every election since 1952."

"We have three daughters, five grandsons and one granddaughter. I think about them all the time. They have pet names for me. I don't see them nearly enough."

"Justin and I play word games at breakfast. I'm a demon walker and walk about ten miles – briskly -- a week. We have two dogs, Pansy and Daisy, who seem to occupy more time and emotional space than they ought to."

"Justin and I love to travel. We go on these ‘educational' trips, where Harvard professors tell you what you're going to see or what you have just seen."
