读书笔记 The Transaction
刀刀

第一个原则是交往。写作时,心里要时刻想着对面有一个读者。我该用什么方法来引起对方的阅读兴趣?怎么组织内容来让对方容易理解?怎么强调能让对方抓住我最想表达的重点? 想把文章写好,需要持续训练。因为,写作是一项技能,而不是艺术。所以别再说什么没天赋、没灵感,写作不是艺术,而是像修车、游泳和做饭一样的技能,多加练习就能掌握。 It was hard and lonely, and the words seldom just flowed.写作是个苦活,很少字如泉涌。 I pointed out that professional writers rewrite their sentences over and over and then rewrite what they have rewritten.专业作家不断修改他们的作品。 I then said that the professional writer must establish a daily schedule and stick to it. I said that writing is a craft, not an art, and that the man who runs away from his craft because he lacks inspiration is fooling himself. He is also going broke.写作是技能,而不是艺术。你要制定计划,坚持训练,技能才能提高。不要把缺乏灵感,当成你不写作的理由,这是自欺欺人。 The self who emerges on paper is far stiffer than the person who sat down to write. The problem is to find the real man or woman behind the tension.一旦写作,你就会很紧张。你要从紧张的文字中找到真正的自己。 Ultimately the product that any writer has to sell is not the subject being written about, but who he or she is. What holds me is the enthusiasm of the writer for his field. How was he drawn into it? What emotional baggage did he bring along? How did it change his life? It's not necessary to want to spend a year alone at Walden Pond to become involved with a writer who did.你本人比作品内容更重要。 Good writing has an aliveness that keeps the reader reading from one paragraph to the next, and it's not a question of gimmicks to "personalize" the author. It's a question of using the English language in a way that will achieve the greatest clarity and strength.写作最重要的两条,一是生动,使读者愿意读下去,二是清晰有力。
