Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

John Vorhaus is now known to one and all as the man who brought Radar Hoverlander - con artist extraordinaire - to life in the "sunshine noir" mystery novel, THE CALIFORNIA ROLL, and its acclaimed sequel, THE ALBUQUERQUE TURKEY. His other novels include UNDER THE GUN and WORLD SERIES OF MURDER, the latter available exclusively through Kindle. John is also well known as the author of THE COMIC TOOLBOX: HOW TO BE FUNNY EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT. This seminal book on writing comedy for television and film is now in its fifth printing, and continues to be a definitive source of information and inspiration for writers from Santa Monica to Scandinavia. Its companion volume, CREATIVITY RULES, is similarly a crucial book for writers at any stage of development. Not content to rest on those laurels, Vorhaus is also the author of ten books on poker, including the KILLER POKER series and, with Annie Duke, the revolutionary DECIDE TO PLAY GREAT POKER. "As a poker player," confesses Vorhaus, "I'm a pretty good writer." An international consultant in television and film script development, Vorhaus has worked for television networks, film schools, production companies and film funding bodies in 26 countries on four continents. He recently worked in Moscow, running the writing staff of the Russian version of Married... with Children, and in Tel Aviv, consulting on the Israeli version of The Golden Girls. He also travels regularly to Nicaragua, where he builds social-action comedy/dramas to provide positive role modeling for the poor, young and disenfranchised of that embattled country.

How to Write Good 26. Mai 2013
Von BigAl - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
The dedication of How to Write Good is "to everyone who has the itch," and its aim seems as much motivational as instructional, to get those who are writing wannabes to start, and encourage those who have tried and struggled, to try, try again. If there is an overriding theme, it is that the key to figuring out what works, not for other writers, but what works for you, is not being afraid to give an idea a try. Be whimsical. Heck, you can even try a grammatically questionable title.

Vorhaus says "in writing, there are no wrong choices," and he's not afraid to make what seems like a wrong choice. For example, this snippet from early in the book:

(Boy, here comes a convoluted sentence - get ready for it.) I figure you figure what I figure you figure because if I were you I would be figuring the exact same thing. (Told ya. Convoluted as hell.)

Confused? I can't blame you, yet, this sentence worked for me. Vorhaus' books are always spiked with humor, and as the above shows, he's not afraid of poking fun at himself. In this section he's talking about reading the mind of the reader, specifically how they'll react, by evaluating how you react (this is also one of the keys to success in poker, one of Vorhaus' other areas of expertise).

After reading How to Write Well, even the worst writer in the world should be encouraged to keep plugging away. As Vorhaus says, even that worst writer who is "spewing drivel onto the page every day," will eventually reach the point where it "will cease being drivel, or at least evolve into drivel of a finer sort." For some of us, drivel of a finer sort is a worthy goal, at least for now.

This succinct and dandy guide is the perfect companion for the novice writer with the big story in their heart, an experienced writer in need of reinvention and everyone in between. Easy to read and follow, John offers you basic guidelines to keep you tapping on your keyboard with tips such as using whimsy (and not fear), pivots to keep your action moving, handling writers block and how to use your inner truth in developing the theme(s) in your material. He also offers pragmatic and logical steps to make your dream of being a writer a reality and does so in a manner that will keep you laughing throughout.

Vorhaus is a very clever writer, alert to the ironies inherent in both the English language and the craft of writing in it. Highly enjoyable, entertaining and thought-provoking. Bravo!
