This is an international blog about literature and lyrics. Here I include my own lyrics, by Rui M. but also the work of others, specially those authors at Rui M. Publishing. Periodical art contests and comments are a reality. Obrigado. Thanks. Arigatou

During the Book Market Fair in Lisbon (2017) it was possible to interview Paula Hawkins. It was a very exciting experience and a privilege to speak with a writer with such a big success in thriller novels. Her answers were very important to us in order to better understand who is a writer and how life influences their work.

 

 

What does being a writer mean to you?

Writing is more a vocation than a profession: I’m lucky enough to be able to earn a living by doing it, but I think I would write – just as I always have written – even if I wasn’t published.  Since childhood I have relished making up stories: it took until I was in my thirties to find the confidence to show those stories to others, but the urge to create fiction has never left me.

 

Which season of your life do you think had the most influence on your writing?

Possibly my late teens/early twenties, which was the time at which I left Zimbabwe, where I grew up, and moved to London, where I live now. Those years were turbulent, and often lonely – I wrote a great deal at the time. At nineteen, I moved to Paris and lived there for a year. That was the first time I had lived alone, in a foreign city, speaking a language I struggled to master. It was lonely, again, but exciting too.

 

Is it possible for a writer to create their work without consideration for the feelings of the people around them?

I think perhaps it is possible, though I’m not sure that it should be. Writing is, for me, an exercise in empathy, in understanding others, in being able to place yourself in the position of another and imagine their thoughts and feelings. It would be strange then if while imagining the thoughts and feelings of fictional characters, one were to ignore the feelings of the real people in the society we live in.

Dear friends, this is the first of a group of posts (I want to believe it is) about life and literature. To begin with I would like to tell you that I think literature should be as sugar to life, because it can ad magic and good feelings. For me literature is something that can make us think but should be essentially to make us feel better. It should be able to produce a blue mist as we felt during adolescence as Leon Tosltoy might believe.

Next day I will talk more about this.

Please come here always.

Regards

I think that an important aspect of literature is the possibility to imagine a life that we want. For me, catastrophes and other sad situations, aren't important in this context. In fact, if you want to see something sad you only have to turn on the tv. Literature can also help you to build a better life where you have everything you really want, or at least those things that you value the most. You probably agree with me...
