Cornelia Funke’s Top 5 Writing Tips

Marcus Riddle's Blog

So today we talk about the extremely talented German childrens writer. She is more known for her Inkheart trilogy, but I have to say that some of her others are equally as good. Especially Dragon Rider, and The Thief Lord.

1. “Keep a piece of paper and a pen always close by. Like a moleskin notebook. Because the best ideas always come out of nowhere.”

2. “When you really want to start writing about something, make sure you are really, really passionate about it.”

3. “If somebody says to you: ‘Things are this way. You can’t change it.’ Don’t believe a word.”

4. “Read. Be curious.”

5. “Books have to be heavy because the whole world’s inside them.”

That’s it for this week.


Hope you all have a great week

M. Riddle
