Happy new year, everyone!
I would like to try something new, actually a couple of new things. I am tackling the difficult task of improving my writing. I am doing it for SPREY (which I have on my mind daily) and everything I am doing and will do ever. And for everyone who has ever took a shot at writing, it seems to take a painful amount of time, energy and patience to arrive at any worthwhile destination. Although some days are indeed not great, I am happy with my overall trajectory. I have picked up a fantastic book on the „rules“ and practise of writing, „Grundlagen und Techniken der Schreibkunst“ by Otto Schumann, which serves as my guide through this mysterious world. I am reading with a new appreciation for old and contemporary literature now that I understand the invisible rules guiding it. I am also doing the homework of actively working through literature that encounters me and doing my own writing. And I will be an okay writer in a bit. I will be home soon, at last, with my set of skills and SPREY and my other works will then have the working invisible structures they need.
