Sie möchten einen Roman schreiben und damit viel Geld verdienen?
Dann sind Sie für dieses Buch nicht der Richtige. Wenn Sie aber nicht ans Geld, sondern an die Wörter und Sätze denken, die sich in Ihnen melden und die ein textual content werden wollen, dann haben Sie gerade das Buch in der Hand, das Ihnen dabei helfen kann. Es enthält nämlich weder Schnittmuster noch Baupläne und schon gar keine Gebrauchsanweisungen; es nimmt vielmehr Sie selbst ernst als jemanden, der sich auf das riskante Unternehmen einläßt, aus Erfahrung und Sprache Kunst entstehen zu lassen. Da ist dann vom Glück des Beginnens ebenso die Rede wie vom Einfall, vom Figuren finden, von Klang und Wohlklang, aber auch von der Blockade und dem Warten. Kluges Nachdenken über die Rolle des Schriftstellers hilft beim Überprüfen der eigenen Erwartungen. Das Buch ist durchzogen von der Lust, die das Schreiben verursacht, und der Freude, die seine Ergebnisse bewirken können.
