January 8th…Again

This post is also available in: Spanish

Isabel will be starting a new book on Tuesday, January 8th. If you don’t know the meaning of January 8th, it’s the date that Isabel starts ALL of her novels. Read more about it here.

I was struck by this final paragraph in Musings, which appears on Isabel’s website.

I write because I need to remember and overcome. It is from memory and a sense of loss that the passion to create emerges. Every book is an act of love, an offering that I prepare with great care, hoping that it will be well received.

So, we will wait and see what comes of it! I am happy she is writing. I’ve never met anyone so driven or so completely a writer. I have no doubts the new book will be well received.

Isabel at her first computer! I posted this in 2011 and had to re-post it because I love it so much.

    Good luck with the little baby tomorrow!
    Since I’ve discovered her books, two years ago, every 8th of January since then reminds me of the birth of a baby, which is always full of fear and joy same time. It may sound silly, but I am nervous about it also, maybe because I can empathize with the struggle of the writer in front of the tremendous white paper.

    I am thinking already of the end of the book, so go ahead with the first page,Isabel, the rest is just about us, your readers 🙂

    Good luck!

    Querida Isabel,

    Mesmo sem saberes quem sou, tenho uma conexão intensa com a tua obra e vida. Sou jornalista no sul do Brasil, onde a influência cultural vem dos países vizinhos, Uruguai e Argentina. Portanto, vivo na parte onde o país não é tropical, a música preferida não é o samba – e sim as milongas, a gastronomia é baseada na carne e as cores são mais cinzas. Um canto de mundo especial, singular, onde escrevemos nossa história cotidiana.

    Desde aqui te enxergo ao longo dessa carreira tão intensa emocionalmente, e que tanto admiro. Busco nas livrarias do país, os teus livros não traduzidos, ou seja, escritos em espanhol – tua língua mãe. Por consequência, todo dia 8 de janeiro envio minhas melhores energias para ti, como raios invisíveis de carinho. Casualmente neste momento estou relendo versão em espanhol de “Paula”. Nada é por acaso, eu sei.

    Hoje é o dia. Imagino daqui, todo processo. Fico ansiosa, esperando ler na imprensa novidades sobre o “novo filho”, gerado desse ritual.

    Desejo que seja profundo e revigorante!

    com carinho,
    Gabi
