I know, I know

Giorgio is a horse, of course, of course

I know, I know, I have been away for long but in truth I’ve never written so much, much more than I have ever written on this blog. I have been busy with my novel, a trilogy called Three sides of the coin, of which the first volume (The knight move, temporary title) is now at last finished 🥴.

Soon I will here publish some excerpts of this work, which I have been writing for 12 years (Giorgio: “Aren’t you exaggerating?”🙄), ie from the day I started the other (and dearest to me) Man of Roma blog, now closed (many MoR’s posts are tho here, there including comments).

Not that The Notebook is not dear to me, though.

Lo sfinimento

Il problema della documentazione per scrivere un racconto o un romanzo è che a volte ci si sfinisce talmente tanto per documentarsi che alla fine non si scrive più.

Per carità, va bene, è un modo ottimo per studiare in modo mirato.

Però, ecchediamine!

Books. Our Own Film Inside Our Head

“Whenever anyone had mentioned the possibility of making a film adaptation [of my most famous book] my answer had always been ‘No, I’m not interested’. I believe that each reader creates his own film inside his head, gives faces to the characters, contructs every scene, hears the voices, smells the smells. And that is why whenever a reader goes to see a film based on a novel that he likes, he leaves feeling disappointed, saying: ‘The book is so much better than the film’.

(quote from Paulo Coelho’s The Zahir, HarperCollins Publisher 2005)
