Green Salami That is the best - to laugh with someone because you both think the same things are funny. Gloria Vanderbilt Sometime during the seventh grade two things happened to me. The first was that I got hooked on salami. Salami sandwiches, salami and cheese, salami on crackersI couldn't get enough of the salty, spicy sausage. The other thing was that my mom and I weren't getting along really well. We weren't fighting really badly or anything, but it just seemed as if all she wanted to do was argue with me and tell me what to do. We also didn't laugh together much anymore. Things were changing, and my mom and I were the first to feel it. As far as the salami went, my mom wouldn't download any because she said it was too expensive and not that good for me. To prove my emerging independence, I decided to go ahead and eat what I wanted anyway.

Yang kedua adalah jika kita menjalani prosesnya, kita akan mencapai tujuan kita.

Gregory Poirier: Uang bagiku merupakan produk sampingan yang menyenangkan dari menulis; uang bukan alasanku menulis. Nora Profit: Jangan sampai kau meragukan dirimu sendiri. Kau akan rugi. Siapakah yang mengenalkanmu menulis?

Cookie Potter: Ayahku membacakanku cerita atau bercerita untukku setiap malam. Ia sangat suka bercerita tentang cerita yang suatu hari yang akan ia tulis dalam bukunya. Mengapa Anda terus menulis? Catharine Bramkamp: Dunia memerlukannya. Itu pekerjaan kami. Marilyn Pribus: Ketika kita menulis tentang hal-hal yang dirasakan orang di manapun-saat sulit, saat menyenangkan, keputusasaan, kegembiraan-sandi dikirim, seorang sahabat sejiwa menangkapnya, dan hubungan penting itu terjalin.

Apa pesan dari teladan Anda dalam menulis? Sue Grafton: Ayahku mengatakan: Membungkuklah bersama angin. Ketika kekecewaan datang, sesuatu yang pasti kamu alami, jangan menjadi kaku karena perasaan pahit. Bersikaplah anggun. Anggap dirimu sendiri sebagai sebatang anak pohon, menyerah pada keadaan tanpa patah atau putus. Dan Millman: Ayahku berkata: Kalau ada satu fakta yang tidak benar, seluruh cerita akan rusak.

James A. Michener menyarankan pada penulis muda untuk melakukan penelitian mendalam sebelum mencoba menulis sebuah novel. Apa pesan Anda bagi para calon penulis? Howard Fast: Ada penulis yang berpenghasilan jutaan, dan ada penulis lain yang berpenghasilan sangat sedikit, tapi itu bukan ukuran nilai. Nilai sejati ada dalam dirimu dan hanya bisa diukur oleh pengertianmu akan keadaan manusia. Belajarlah untuk berpikir jernih, pahami mediamu dan pahami orang-orang.

Irving Wallace: Weidman menasihatiku "Pikirkan tentang menulis satu halaman, hanya satu halaman, setiap hari. Di akhir hari, di akhir satu tahun, kamu mempunyai halaman. Dan tahukah kamu apa yang kamu punya? Kamu mempunyai sebuah buku lengkap. Seperti profesi lain di luar penulis, kegagalan, frustrasi, tantangan, adalah masa-masa yang cukup berat. Para penulis ini berbagi kehidupan bahwa pada suatu titik akan ada kepuasan tersendiri yang entah itu sesuai dengan harapan sebelumnya atau tidak.

Namun, pada intinya saya yakin mereka sependapat, bahwa mereka itu menikmati hidup ini dengan menulis. Kembali pada tulisan saya di atas, saya membuka-buka lagi laman blog saya, kok ya masih belum terinspirasi?

Pertanyaan kedua: May 17, Braxton Schieler rated it liked it. If you are unfamiliar with the Chicken Soup series, the idea is that a bunch of different short stories about a bunch of different topics fitting under one larger topic i.

They were encouraging and led to some m If you are unfamiliar with the Chicken Soup series, the idea is that a bunch of different short stories about a bunch of different topics fitting under one larger topic i.

They were encouraging and led to some major takeaways on the craft of writing and what writers do. They don't talk about writing, dream about writing, even read. They write. You don't have to look that far to find a story. Anything deserves to be written about. But my complaints about this book are simply: Once you've read three or four of them you've read them all, and so, even though the majority of them were great by themselves, reading this book at one time was painful.

Splitting it up and reading it when you need some inspiration would be better, but as I read it to work on getting my page count for school that was not an option. Aug 09, Amy "the book-bat" rated it really liked it Shelves: I really enjoy these books because the stories are inspirational and encouraging. I like to keep books with short stories like this in the bathroom because the stories are perfect for the short minutes spent or even for the longer moments. In the case of Writer's Soul, it is very encouraging to read how different authors handle rejection and eventually managed to get published.

If they can do it, maybe I can too?! I aspire to he a writer someday and enjoyed how encouraging this book was towards that goal. Jul 08, Megan Schemenauer rated it it was amazing. Most stories and quotes are extremely inspirational in motivating me to write! Rasa takut ditolak lebih buruk daripada penolakan itu sendiri, begitu kata Nora Profit, salah satu penulis yang menyumbang kisah dalam buku ini.

Bayangkan, karena begitu takut tulisannya ditolak, saat menerima surat dari sebuah majalah nasional dimana ia mengirim karya, Nora langsung melempar surat tersebut dan melupakannya.

Lima tahun kemudian ketika sedang membersihkan rumah, ia menemukan surat tersebut. Ternyata isi surat itu adalah pujian bahwa tulisannya sangat bagus dan majalah tersebut ma Rasa takut ditolak lebih buruk daripada penolakan itu sendiri, begitu kata Nora Profit, salah satu penulis yang menyumbang kisah dalam buku ini. Ternyata isi surat itu adalah pujian bahwa tulisannya sangat bagus dan majalah tersebut mau menerbitkan.

Kaget tentu saja, menyesal apalagi. Nora telah melewatkan kesempatan hanya karena rasa takut ditolak yang begitu besar. Banyak di antara kita—yang ingin menjadi penulis—mungkin punya ketakutan sama dengan Nora. Kisah tentang kesungguhan, ketekunan, kepercayaan diri, pengorbanan, dukungan dari orang-orang terdekat juga keraguan—bahkan penyepelean—terhadap kemampuan seseorang untuk menjadi penulis, hingga kisah tentang kerendahan hati penulis yang telah sukses dan terkenal.

Alex Haley alias Alexander Murphy Palmer Haley, seperti dikisahkan Bud Gardner misalnya, adalah penulis yang membumi, tidak arogan karena keterkenalannya. Kita mungkin tak terlalu familiar dengan namanya, tapi bila disebut The Autobiography of Malcolm X, sebagian besar pasti pernah membaca, minimal tahu.

Bud Gardner menceritakan pengalamannya mengundang Haley dan bagaimana Haley begitu akrab dan rendah hati pada para pembacanya. Profesor tersebut mengatakan tulisannya jelek dan memberi saran untuk mengubah jurusan jurnalisme menjadi perawat. Catherine pun membakar ceritanya dan selama 14 tahun tidak pernah menulis dan menyingkirkan cita-citanya. Hingga suatu hari Catherine bertemu sekelompok penulis.

Penulis tersebut memotivasi dan memberinya kartu nama. Sepulang dari pertemuan tersebut, Cateherine langsung menulis sebuah novel setebal halaman, menyerahkannya kepada penulis yang pernah ia temui, dan sebulan kemudian ia mendapat kabar bahwa novelnya layak terbit.

Selama 20 tahun sejak itu, Catherine telah menulis 20 novel.

57: This Writer’s Soul

Selain kisah-kisah yang menggugah, ada juga kisah yang cukup kocak. Francis beberapa kali bolak-balik ke redaksi majalah tersebut untuk bertemu langsung dengan editor, namun resepsionis tak pernah mengizinkan. Francis tak putus asa. Beberapa hari kemudian ia membawa 25 cek berlangganan ke kantor LAM. Ia pun diberi kesempatan untuk menulis artikel politik. Jangan salah, buku mereka bahkan hingga dicetak jutaan kopi.

Meski tak semua penulis kisah dikenal secara luas Indonesia khususnya , namun kisah-kisah mereka akan memberi sudut pandang lain mengenai dunia menulis. Menulis, bukan sebuah hal yang mudah, meski juga bukan hal yang sangat sulit.

Tak cukup bakat serta keinginan, tapi juga keberanian untuk memilih dan menjalaninya. Nov 07, Ty rated it it was ok. Some okay collections of essays. This is my only experience with one of the Chicken Soup books, so maybe they are all like this, but I didn't find most of the selections inspiring. In fact, for a book that I assumed was a pick-me-up, there was an awful lot of dying.

I admit I eventually moved on to the next one once that seemed to be where an essay was going.

Series: Chicken Soup for the Soul

Also, any collection such as this has to cherry pick a bit. But in this case, it seems they picked a whole lot of ultra-lucky break stories. And "you can too"? None were a guarantee of best seller status, but if you can afford to rub elbows in social circles with famous people in the writing world, or attend their exclusive classes, your chances are better, you have to admit, than a writer in Oklahoma with two part time jobs barely making rent.

There were a few stories catering to the latter type of experience, and those are the ones I generally found most useful. Sep 26, Lacey Louwagie rated it liked it Shelves: To be fair to this book, I don't think I'm the right "audience" for the Chicken Soup books, or I'm just not inspired by inspiration. This book is full of stories by authors who ran up against one obstacle or another, or wrote about how meaningful writing is, or about how it had changed their life or someone else's.

This book might have hit the mark for me more when I was sixteen, but right now, inspiration isn't really what I need on my writer's journey.

Instead, I'm much more interested in readi To be fair to this book, I don't think I'm the right "audience" for the Chicken Soup books, or I'm just not inspired by inspiration. Instead, I'm much more interested in reading books that help me deepen and broaden my skills; stories that only offer inspiration feel a little empty. In fact, I often found the stories depressing rather than inspiring, as the writers talked about one-in-a-million "lucky breaks," or how wildly successful they ended up being.

Are these books supposed to make one feel inadequate? Also, it seems the Chicken Soup books rely on cliches, and that's something that writers are taught to scorn, so I almost gave it two stars, but I did record a lot of quotes about writing from within its pages -- so if it's worth quoting, I guess it's worth at least one more star. Feb 04, Eric Juneau rated it it was ok.

I needed a little pick-me-up for my writing these days or maybe a Phoenix Down or Philosopher's Stone. We all need some motivation some times. I was hoping that this book could add a little gumption to my typing fingers. But the articles just don't give much to inspire. In fact, a lot of them did the opposite. They told me just how much more others achieved with so little to start with. The "genius" authors as I call them -- the ones whose success and talent cannot be duplicated or learned.

It I needed a little pick-me-up for my writing these days or maybe a Phoenix Down or Philosopher's Stone. It just comes naturally to them. And that's the other thing. This book is out of date. We've got people talking about Vietnam and writing in the 's. These people didn't have to deal with self-publishers saturating the market or eBook piracy or god, forbid Fifty Shades of Gray. And some of the stories have a Christian spin on in.

As in "God was sending me a message to write this book", which is the bane of every slush reader. Anyone who says they were commanded to write a book by God scares me. So if you're looking for something to keep you writing, look somewhere else. It has just as much chance of bringing you back down. Bit of a poor effort when it's got the opposite effect.

It's a dose of warm goodness that prevents heartsickness, to be read sparingly and not terribly often because it's not that good.

This incarnation of the series for Writers is a bit outdated in terms of advice, but it's still a lot of really good and well-known authors offering encouragement to those at every point on the path of being a writer: just figuring it out, beginning to write, trying to publish, having been published.

I'll absolutely mine this for good quotes to keep around when I feel like I'm coming down with writer's block or something, but I don't know that I'll read this every couple of months or anything.

Writing has always been a passion of mine and the way that I express myself best. This book came along at the perfect time and truly lifted my spirits and inspired me anew! Making Time to Write was my absolute favorite section! One of the problems with being a stay at home mom and attempting to work with a three and five year old on the loose is challenging to say the least. I never have enough time! Wrestling with Writers Block was also inspirational. How many times have I stared at a blank screen watching the cursor blink, taunting me to say something brilliant!

These authors had story of hope and inspiration that made me feel not alone and that I too can do anything I set my mind too.

Chicken Soup for the Soul: Inspiration for Writers is truly the inspiration it claims to be and one I very much needed to read at this time in my life!
