Da Li Bi Tolstoj Imao Instagram?

#dostojevskisucksmyballs #pazivoz #ana&vronskicopuplegoalz #sotomakeashortstorylong

Ne znam za vas, ali ja ga već čujem u glavi.

Lav: Juče sam imao 5345 followera, a danas 5234! Jbt, da li je moguće?! Gde grešim?! Da li koristim dobar filter?

Na dnevnom nivou, on sa Sofijom nastavlja ove visoko-intelektualne razgovore:

– Sonjuška, jesi postovala današnji ručak?

– A šta misliš, da li mi se ova sa košenjem uklapa u feed?

– Ne verujem da se deca vide a da si mene isekla na slici!

– Čekaj da li mi se čini ili si izbelila sebi zube a ne meni?!

I kao najvažnije, Lav bar jedanput dnevno Sofiji gura telefon u ruke i naređuje: slikaj tako da izgleda da se ludo zabavljam.

Pisanje Pod Pseudonimom – Ko Si Bre Ti?

(ili da li izmisliti sebe, ponovo?)

Pre svega, zašto umetnici uopšte menjaju svoja imena?

Razloga ima milion. Među glumcima na primer, često je slučaj da se njihovo “obično” ime promeni u neko “lepše”, čarobnije.

A među piscima?

Uzimanje drugog imena ponekad je želja za anonimnošću, ponekad strah od osude, strah od zabrana, društvenih okolnosti pa čak i političkih progona. Ponekad mi se čini da je i sama umetnost pisanja takva – pisac želi da stvori neki lik i onda samog sebe najpre nazove drugim imenom, kako bi postao onaj koji piše tj stvara.

Alternativno JA.

Svemoguće.

Dozvolite Da Deca i/li Posao Trpe Zbog Pisanja

(ili kako dođavola pronaći vremena za pisanje)

Ako imate vremena da pročitate ovaj tekst, imate vremena i da pišete 🙂 No nemojte da vas grize savest ako su vam pored ovog posta otvorena još najmanje 23 taba sa snimcima beba životinja i tekstova koje naprosto “morate” da pročitate.

Ili što uopšte čitate ovaj tekst kad možete raditi nešto drugo.

Jer ja vas razumem. Vaša glavna briga jeste kako da oslobodite vreme da se bavite nečim što silno želite.

Šta Ako Hoću Da Napišem Knjigu Po Istinitom Događaju

(Ili knjiga zasnovana na stvarnom događaju – kako napisati istinu bez kršenja autorskih prava?)

Da li ste ikada čuli ili doživeli nešto što ste poželeli da pretočite u priču ili roman? Ako jeste, razumem vas potpuno; bilo da je u pitanju neki neverovatan događaj kome ste prisustvovali ili intimna ljubavna priča, pisanje zasnovano na istinitim događajima može izgledati veoma (veoma!) primamljivo. Ah, da mi je samo dinar za svaki put kada sam čula: “e mogla bi da napišeš šta se sve meni u životu dogodilo”!

Da Li Je (Elektronska) Knjiga Proizvod?

(guest post Biljane Stanojčić

Elektronske knjige u Srbiji, dok pišem ovo, ne može se reći da su zaživele. Neke izdavačke kuće imaju i svoje čitačke aplikacije i elektronska izdanja njihovih knjiga. Na najpoznatijim svetskim čitačkim platformama, međutim, ne mogu da se čitaju knjige na srpskom jeziku ili se ne mogu kupiti iz Srbije.

Međutim, mnoge druge mogućnosti svakako postoje. Elektronskih knjiga na srpskom jeziku ima; a mnogi čitaoci mogu da čitaju i na engleskom jeziku.

What Is A Facebook Page, Really? And Not Profile?!

(guest post by Jelena Rasic, freelance specialist for social media)

Most of us already know that TV, radio and newspapers are no longer the best advertising option, and many on the other hand realized that the social networks are. Every so often you can hear something about social media, about favorable advertising, quick and easy targeting, and of course personalized relationship with it. Many talk about how to handle social media, and why television is not what it used to be, why people don’t buy newspapers anymore and are actually more and more informed through social media. What I can see is that there is more how(s) than why(s) in this whole story, and we all kind of skip the initials and basics, so that’s precisely one of the reasons why I decided to write this text.

Digitalni Gutenberg 8 – Elektronsko Izdavaštvo U Srbiji

(ili elektronsko izdavaštvo – izazovi i granice; ovaj put Sonja u tandemu sa autorkom ovog bloga)

Bez obzira na pozitivna iskustva onih koji koriste elektronske čitače, izdavači tvrde da njih u Srbiji ipak nema dovoljno i zbog toga se izdavačke kuće u našoj zemlji ne odlučuju na masovno e-izdavaštvo jer to za sada ne bi bilo isplativo. Nedovoljna potražnja na tržištu ne bi pokrila ni osnovna ulaganja, regulisanje autorskih prava, prevod, lekturu i dizajn, a tu su i problemi sa piraterijom i nelegalnim distribuiranjem koje većina izdavača u Srbiji navodi kao glavnu prepreku za razvoj elektronskog izdavaštva. Pojedini autori, pak, smatraju da je taj strah neutemeljen, jer knjiga preuzeta sa Amazona zaštićena je takozvanim DRM (Digital Rights Management) sistemom i ne može se kopirati tek tako sa uređaja na uređaj. Kao još jedna bitna prepreka za razvoj elektronskog izdavaštva u Srbiji navodi se činjenica da su u našoj zemlji računari još uvek nedovoljno rasprostranjeni i da je broj korisnika Interneta nizak.

Kako Objaviti Knjigu Bez Izdavača

Već sam pričala o tome kako objaviti knjigu (u Srbiji) i kako objaviti elektronsku knjigu, a sada je vreme za grand finale: kako objaviti knjigu bez izdavača! Ovaj vid izdavanja podrazumeva da budete sami svoj izdavač što nije (toliko) teško, a verovali ili ne, čak nije ni skupo. Naravno, neophodno je da uradite par stvari pre nego što krenete da plivate u svom prvom miliončetu.*

*samoobjavljivanjem milioni nisu zagarantovani i samo od vas zavisi da li će se ovaj vid izdavanja isplatiti ili ne 😉

Gotivna Literatura Za (Buduće) Blogere

(ili Click & Learn: Osnove Blogovanja)

Već sam jednom govorila o korisnim spisateljskim linkovima, a zašto sam se odlučila da napišem tekst o obaveznoj literaturi za blogovanje, ne znam, mada je najverovatnije razlog taj što me mrzi da ljudima objašnjavam uvek sve iznova i šaljem linkove. Na ovaj način ću sebi olakšati život i slati samo jedan link koji u sebi sadrži sve neophodne stvari koje se tiču toga kako započeti blog a pored toga, ovde stoji i gomila stvari koja govori kako svoj blog poboljšati pa je ovo idealna literatura i za one koji su malo iskusniji.

Digital Gutenberg 7 – Digital Libraries

(ili elektronsko izdavaštvo – izazovi i granice; guest post Sonje Ocić)

(Zvanični predavač na 2. Industrijskom Forumu u Poljskoj bila je i Sonja Ocić – upravo zahvaljujući ovim tekstovima! Komada 7 ukupno do sad, a I deo se nalazi ovde

Tradicionalni modeli biblioteka, zasnovani na principima prikupljanja i čuvanja štampanih publikacija, postali su krajem dvadesetog veka relikti prošlosti, koji nisu mogli istom brzinom da odgovore tehnološkim promenama. Javila se potreba da se biblioteke sa izgradnje i bogaćenja svojih fondova više okrenu ka obezbeđivanju pristupa informacijama, koje više ne moraju biti locirane unutar fizičkih biblioteka, niti su obavezno deo njihovog fonda. Tu spadaju knjige koje se čuvaju u svetskim bibliotekama, svi tekući i raniji brojevi časopisa, dnevne novine, izvori s globalne mreže, izveštaji, leci, patenti, fotografije ili video zapisi, audio zapisi… Jedan od zadataka biblioteke je da osmisli taj univerzum za svoje korisnike, tako što će ga mapirati i šifrirati, i izabrati delove za koje će verovatno postojati interesovanje.

Zašto Je Vaša Facebook Strana Očajna

(ili 7 smrtnih grehova postovanja na društvenim mrežama i kako ih okajati)

Dobro, ne baš smrtnih, preživećete. Ali vaša strana možda i neće.

Nego, da vas pitam ja nešto.

KOJA JE POENTA VAŠE FEJZBUK STRANE?

Šta pokušavate da postignete? Šta vi tačno radite na društvenim mrežama?

Ukoliko ste zamucnuli (ili čak i oklevali) pri odgovoru, logično je da je vaš pejdž u nevolji.

A da li ćete imati odgovore na ovo pitanje do kraja teksta – zavisi isključivo od vas.

Creative Writing 4 – Enemies & Allies Of Writing

(or why you’re not writing, and what are the biggest challenges in writing)

As discussed previously, for any writer the biggest challenge is – writing; to complete the text, create compelling characters, to balance styles and ideas, and to create credibility. We all have our reasons why we (don’t) write,  so today I’ll talk about enemies – and allies – that may affect your writing.

Ghostwriting – Who Am I Really Reading?!

(šta je to ghostwriting i kako pronaći posao kao ghostwriter – guest post Ivane Gvozdenović)

Ok, prošle su vas konačno sve faze odrastanja! Odavno ne želite da budete muzičar, lekar, pilot ili astronaut (bilo je svega, priznaćete), i konačno ste shvatili šta je ono čime zaista želite da se bavite. Ako je to Pisanje, sa velikim P iz poštovanja prema svemu kroz šta ćete proći, onda vam u isto vreme čestitam i saosećam sa vama. Rodila se u vama ta romantična misao da celoga života živite od mašte i olovke, i pre nego što shvatite, ta misao će postati životni san.

Creative Writing 3 – Surprise Your Reader

Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have already read Uros Petrovic’s words I heard at BookTalk. On one of the panels, while everybody infinitely debated on literature, The Fifth Butterfly author said: “We can all sit here and talk the best we can, like modern Ciceros, but it’ll be forgotten in less than a week. Simply, the brain only wakes up when something’s unusual. For instance, if I now rise up and sing the Pakistani national anthem backwards, that would be retold for years. But what we talk now wouldn’t be. Same goes for literature. There are just a few writers who know how to wake up someone else’s brain.”

Creative Writing 2 – Common Writing Mistakes

I have to admit this title is a bit flashy, because I don’t believe in mistakes while writing in any given way; whatever you write – it’s great, and everything’s just fine. Also, while preparing for this article I consulted a number of videos (on this topic), read at least 10 other articles and 2 books, and I can tell you that it’s all nonsense. Each and every of these advices are quite limited and in my opinion could make any begginer-writer go crazy, plus some of the biggest names would easily deny each and every single one of these mistakes. Therefore this article is completely different, and won’t to dare say much more relevant, but definitely written with good intention, approaching this topic with much caution, so it doesn’t hurt the fragile souls of usualy hypersensitive writers.

Creative Writing 1 – Screw Inspiration

(or why you are not writers if you just write)

I was always fascinated by the fact that the doctor who completes university studies, is not really a doctor, but an accomplished physician who spent 5 (or more) years studying various diseases, and after years of learning has to go through decades of learning through practice, to become good at what he does. From this perspective, I ask why (on earth) people who wrote 4 lines think that they are writers?! Don’t agree with me, that goes for all of you who have published 2-3 stories or even the whole book.

Digital Gutenberg 6 – Electronic Publications

(ili elektronsko izdavaštvo – izazovi i granice; guest post Sonje Ocić)

(tekst koji je oduševio nacije, pa upravo zahvaljujući ovim tekstovima autorka Sonja Ocić odlazi da bude predavač na 2. Industrijskom Forumu u Poljsku! Ukoliko ste propustili, I deo se nalazi ovde, a svi ostali između se mogu pronaći na blogu pod kategorijom writing) 

Danas ćemo se baviti pojedinim vrstama elektronskih publikacija kao što su elektronski časopisi i novine jer se pokazalo  da je prelaz sa štampanih izdanja na elektronska bio najbrži u izdavaštvu stručnih časopisa i da sva štampana izdanja novina, bilo dnevnih bilo nedeljnih, danas imaju svoj pandan u elektronskom obliku. U drugom delu teksta tema je blog kao forma elektronskog izdavaštva. Za nas su naročito interesantni književni blog i blogerska književnost – pod književnim blogom smatra se blog na kojem autor objavljuje originalnu poeziju i prozu, ali i eseje, recenzije pročitanih knjiga, odlomke omiljenih dela i tome slično, dok je blogerska književnost sve prisutnija originalna književnost. Šta su prednosti ove nove forme i da li predstavljaju gubitak ili dobitak za izdavačku industriju?

Creative Writing (introduction) – Why Do I Write

Not sure when exactly did I get the idea (although I do know that I started writing a diary when I was 9), but I’ve always wanted to be a writer. When I realised that I need to teach myself what I want to become, first thing I did is that I found a single book translated into Serbian language from Dorothea Brande called exactly: Creative writing. I haven’t put the link to this book as Dorothea, good bless her soul, destroyed me from the start because of her belief that if you don’t write every day, you might as well quit writing straight away, which in my case doesn’t work as I have the bad habit of not writing for months. Unsatisfied with what I just read, I decided to try my luck elsewhere, so I got myself a bunch of textbooks in English that all have the words creative writing in its title.

Digital Gutenberg 5 – Prices Of E-books

(ili elektronsko izdavaštvo – izazovi i granice; guest post Sonje Ocić)

(nastavak u serijalu odličnih postova autorke Sonje Ocić – ukoliko ste propustili, I deo se nalazi ovde, a IV deo ovde a svi ostali između se mogu pronaći na blogu pod kategorijom writing

Iako su izdavači i urednici duboko uključeni u prenos znanja i imaju veoma važnu funkciju, izdavaštvo jeste i verovatno će i ostati biznis, mada biznis koji snabdeva čitaoce štampanim ili elektronskim knjigama koje obrazuju, informišu i zabavljaju. Pri tom, izdavaštvo je i prilično veliki biznis. Na primer, godine 1999. u Americi je objavljeno 119.357 novih naslova; 2001. objavljeno je 141.000 novih izdanja, a 2002. godine 150.000. To znači da je 17.12 novih knjiga ugledalo svetlost dana svakog sata u danu, uključujući i vikende i praznike.

How To Handle Criticism With A Smile

(or how to smile when you hear bad words about you and your writing)

Do you have a person in your life that you simply adore but s/he has a small flaw that leads you into madness (even daily)? That person, whether it’s your mother, friend, spouse or colleague, is all fabulous and shiny, but is let’s say, regularly late, knows everything best or leaves her things in the wrong place. If you even look at 3 loved ones you hang out with, I’m sure you would easily find something that doesn’t suit you in each of them, even if this flaw is something that someone should really change (eg. your colleague is always late and she may lose her job because of this).

Piece of cake, right? Ok, let’s do go right to the hard part – think about yourself. Can you find your flaws? Try it, tell me at least two of your habits that are not exactly the brightest.

DO Judge A Book By Its Cover

(…jer korice tome i služe!)

Vaš brat ima novu devojku i zove vas kod sebe kako biste se upoznali. Dok lagano ispijate svoje piće, prilazi vam osoba koja teži oko 150 kilograma u florscentnom roze korsetu i leopard helankama, i pruža vam ruku: Ćao zaovice! Drago mi je što smo se upoznali!

Vaša reakcija?

Mirno se nasmešite i pomislite: Oh, kakva divna devojka! Savršena je za mog brata! Kakva dama!

Kakav sam telepata, pa sam uspela da pogodim tačno o čemu biste razmišljali. Samo sekund… Šta, ne čujem baš najbolje? Ne?! Ovo ne bi bile vaše prve misli? OMG!

What Else Awesome Is There For Writers – Besides My Blog

(or Click & Learn – Useful (Writing) Links)

Often I wish to share some useful links on my social networks, but I just simply feel bad to put them out there because I don’t want them to be lost in an endless sea of other information – mostly due to the fact that I’m not sure how to quickly explain how useful those links are. On the other hand, when I want to find a link on FB, it usually turns into a mission impossible with banging my head against the wall wondering “oh God why didn’t I save that link?!” That’s why today I’ll put 3 truly great links that will stand here till the end of time and that will surely be interesting for writers, but also to all of those who are not merely interested in reading and writing.

Digital Gutenberg 3 – Electronic Publishing Debate

(or electronic publishing –  challenges and limits; guest post by Sonja Ocic)

(the third in a series of posts written by wonderful  Sonja Ocic – if you are interested in the beginning of the series, click here for the introduction, or here for the second part of the text)

If you answered the question at the end of the last article, you chose to become a digital optimist, skeptic or agnostic. And whatever group you belong to, in the electronic publishing debate, many believe that if it is accepted that the book is only one medium, whether electronic or printed, the main issue is the difference between reading printed or electronic books. In any case, most agree that electronic publishing has several advantages over printed. If it would be necessary to allocate most of them, reasons would be economic, hyper-textual, interactive and, as a result of all this, democratic.

Digital Gutenberg 2 – Concept and Development of Electronic Publishing

(or electronic publishing –  challenges and limits; guest post by Sonja Ocic)

(Second article in a series of posts written by my dear Sonja Ocic – if you have missed the introduction, click here for the first part of the text.)

One of the features that have been created by the rise of the Internet was electronic book, a digital reproduction of traditional printed book, which could be delivered directly to the user through a publisher’s or author’s site, or sites for sale. Electronic books are digitized, virtualized versions of books that can be read on a PC or special equipment – electronic book reader. Some of the advantages of electronic books are: 24 hour availability (no need to wait for bookstore or library to open or require a reservation if the book is already taken), e-books can be accessed from anywhere on the planet and they can’t be lost or stolen. Many programs that are used to display the contents of electronic books allow the reader functionality on which he is used to when reading books printed on paper: marking and underlining text, writing comments and marking pages.

Writer’s Block – Help, I’m Stuck!

(or proved evidences that creative block is really made up)

I’ll have to disappoint you straight away. The world is not as they show it in the movies. Chuck Norris didn’t kill the blindman with his eyes. Carrie and Big didn’t live happily ever after. Amnesia doesn’t affect everyone who hit their head on the table. Cars do not explode. Bullets kill. Hearts break. And creativity is not a fluffy thing that suddenly appears in the final scene when an artist, at a sudden sight of a child playing finds the part he missed and finishes his work within 5 days and 3 sleepless nights.

P.S. If you already want to believe in images you see on screen, go watch cartoons. Yes, Bambi’s mom (spoiler alert!) didn’t really survive.

Dital Gutenberg 1 – Digital Culture & Digital Revolution

(or electronic publishing –  challenges and limits; guest post by Sonja Ocic)

(this is the first in a series of posts written by my dear colleague Sonja Ocic, who works at Clio publishing company as a rights manager. Sonja holds a master degree in General Literature and theory of literature, master degree in Cultural Studies and just to demonstrate that there is no end to her ambitions, Sonja is currently finishing PHD at the Faculty of Political Sciences. To know why Sonja holds more titles than Novak Djokovic, read the following text 🙂 )

The disappearance of the paper book and its transfer to electronic book took place in the last few decades as a very present theme in the developed world; first as a prediction, then as a topic of many books, magazines, websites and blogs, and also as a subject of scientific conferences, round tables and other gatherings. If we believe the latest data, pessimistic predictions were more or less true. Classic book has not yet disappeared, but has lost its primacy since 2011. Amazon, the largest bookstore in the world, sells 10 electronic books every second which is over 310 million copies annually. Also, the American National Institute of Standards and Technology predicts that by 2018, nearly 90% of books sold will be in an electronic form. On the other hand, electronic publishing in Serbia, by itself and as a theme, is much less prevalent.

At The End Of A Beginning

(or what does it feel like when you finish writing a book)

No, I’m still not sleeping alone. Elina… She’s still lying in my bed. We talk at night, I softly whisper that it’s over, but she doesn’t listen and stubbornly turns her head:
– Let me sleep…
And I let her go, telling myself – just one more night. So I lie down and watch her breathing and I’m not sure whether I should cover her, or put a pillow over her head. I don’t want her to leave. But I don’t want her to stay here forever too. Other characters are waiting for their turn. Then I caress her hair for a long time, and call her sweet names, while she sighs sleepily with open mouth, until I fall asleep myself, again and again fascinated by a sight of my own creation.

Is it Possible to Earn Money Being a – Poet?!

(or 5 myths and 6 truths on how to earn money being a poet)

Money and poetry. I see. At first glance, one has nothing to do with another. There’s no money in poetry. But, (wait for it!) there is no poetry in money too. It’s that simple. And if there is among you one poor misunderstood poetic soul – this blog post is for you. And for all of those who cannot understand you.

How To Self Publish Your Book On Amazon?

(and it’s completely free!)

IMPORTANT: I DO NOT PROVIDE SERVICES OF PUTTING YOUR E-BOOK TO KDP SITE NOR I KNOW ANYONE WHO DOES IT. 

Yes, of course I know that I’ve already written a blog post on how to publish an electronic book on iBooks in any language, but here I will focus only on self-publishing for Amazon and show you how to publish your book (both in electronic and paper form!) and give you all possible details when it comes to promoting (and even translating) your book!

Writer – A Hunger Artist

(and how to feed him)

How fortunate I was that Bar Rafaeli agreed to pose for (my favorite magazine) Esquire. Because I googled and googled and googled. Here, try it yourself. Sexy writer. Cute writer. Hot writer. Nothing. Number of satisfactory images = 0. And in print – is equal to zero. Therefore I do thank Bar for providing a cover image for this post. Because being a writer is simply not sexy.

Realizing The Preciousness Of Your Manuscript With Beta Readers

(or who are beta readers and critique partners and how to get them talkin’)

One of the challenges of content quality today is product digitalization. You take a photo, add a filter or two and all of a sudden you’re a Helmut frickin’ Newton. Drone camera shoots a movie scene that is later put in a slow motion and you get The Matrix. Or you just enter a reality show and become a new Marlon Brando. It all looks so, so fabulous. It’s similar when it comes to writing texts. People that type on the computer often think their text is perfect. Letters are all the same and it’s all even on a shiny paper (and you typed with your own hands). But although it may seem nice on the screen, it doesn’t mean it’s actually any good.

(Creative) Writing – Talent or Craft?

(or can writing be taught)

Believe it or not, cursive letters are not being tought in schools in USA for years now. Showing that not only Americans are crazy, in Finland parents choose if they would like their children to learn how to write or not. Yes, would they take the pencil and learn how to write. And before you wonder how the heck is this possible, ask yourself when was the last time you wrote something with your hand (and no, your signature does not count).

Book Reincarnation – E-Readers

(or more about e-book readers and why are they better than normal books)

When it comes to reading books on electronic device (e-reader), paperback editions usually have poor defense:

– Nothing can replace paper and the “real” book!
– Nothing can compare to the feeling of holding a book in your hand!
– It is very difficult to read on a computer!
And then the strangest, and usually the biggest argument is:
– How can I enjoy reading when I cannot smell the book?!
And because all of these reasons are completely well, ridiculous when you think about them, today I want to explain why I think e-readers are so much better than normal books.

I Am Words

I am words I am someone’s words gathered on a paper that are out of paper, I am bunch of letters that I leave behind, I am just a trace in the universe that will disappear without a trace, that may become again, I am trapped in each book for the sake of my body built out of letters, you will not know me unless you read me and I will not know myself because I cannot read myself all to the end, deplete myself, because I am just that pathetic bunch of letters, always the same, fenced with 26 characters, in some language more, in some less, I am alone and always with someone, I am in love with myself too much, in my letters and pages and I have no boundaries, except those letters, but I travel through connections with sentences, I build myself with no connection to words, I am always staring at dot on i and three dots at the end of the thought that is endless and if you think this kick ass how will you only react to something that I write outside of myself and my letters, out of any relation to reality, how will you leave me and let me go forever when you look at this letters and you cannot stop reading me…
