«The writing lab»

Pretentious name for a place where I intend to share knowledge, tips, advice and «recipes» to anyone who wants to know more about writing good texts, whether you are writing a blog, screenplay, books, short stories or simply will write better. What I’m talking about is the ability to write about something important, something that concerns you, or at least write about it so that it seems that it concerns you. Write engaging, interesting and, not least, short.
And therein lies the whole concept – a good text.


Let me settle right away…

Anyone can write

Everyone can write better

Everyone can be published

Writing is a matter of finding small enough words for big enough emotions. Hans Børli

My method

Writers lie a lot. But sometimes we can imagine the truth and twist it a little. Not much, just enough to make the story worth telling.
To the right you see a short story I have written. «The ballet dancers» are a good example of a tiny bit of a lie and something true. I experienced what is described, but of course a little differently. 
And it was a picture like the one shown here that gave me the idea for the whole story. Thats sometimes all it takes

A new, free e book is coming soon: how I go about writing my books. I’ll tell you exactly how I do it. It’s not as difficult as you think.
