“Writing a novel is like making love, but it’s also like having a tooth pulled. Pleasure and pain. Sometimes it’s like making love while having a tooth pulled.

Five Unwritten Rules in Writing You Haven’t Heard (from me)

“I write because I love it. Words are free, and they soar with wings unbound from my mind to my fingers. And then they travel great miles to reach your eyes. Here are the stories that I have to share. They stem from my observations, my experiences, my joys, my anguish, and my pure love of writing. They describe, they explain, they argue, they laugh, they cry. They are for you.”

Show and Tell

Oh, but I have things that I am burning to show you, and things to tell that will boggle your mind.

  • The woman I found in my room at midnight
  • The noise I heard behind me as I walked deep in the forest
  • The air passing by my ears as I fell, howling, from the very top of the cliff.

But these things must wait.

My Experience at Penguin Random House

June 26, 2017

J J Hallam

Being a History and English Literature student at University, I decided it was time to dedicate some thought into my future. I had by this point whittled down my desires to focus on a career that was primarily literature or writing based.

Fortunately, in October 2016, I was given the opportunity to spend some time on a work placement with Penguin Random House based in London. Having not the slightest knowledge beforehand of what the demands of a publisher would entail, I was a completely blank slate.

The Shadow of Chez

Here are some interesting tidbits I pulled from Ernest Hemingway’s 1958 interview in The Paris Review, on the Art of Fiction.

Among other things, Hemingway discusses his process, when he likes to write, and the value of editing. It’s highly readable and informative, despite his apparent boredom for most of the questions: “I see I am getting away from the question, but the question was not very interesting.” And, “when you ask someone old, tired questions you are apt to receive old, tired answers.”

Two highlights from the interview:

One, his confirmation of a writer needing space to create: “You can write any time people will leave you alone and not interrupt you.”

Two, his answer to a question regarding an author’s training:

INTERVIEWER: What would you consider the best intellectual training for the would-be writer?

HEMINGWAY: Let’s say that he should go out and hang himself because…
