LET’S WRITE A BOOK
It’s a time when it is hard to read even a short article on Internet. It is an era in which short articles on SNS and YouTube videos replace letters. The publishing market is shrinking, but photobooks with beautiful Instagram photos are becoming bestsellers. Novelist Chang Kang-Myoung’s 『Let's Write a Book』 contains everything about writing books for prospective writers. He talks about the attitude of a writer, and about writing novels and essays, non-fiction and articles. The title contains all the “30 practical book writing skills” of Chang, who devotes more than 2,200 hours a year writing journals, novels, essays and non-fictions.
WHAT’S SO GOOD ABOUT BOOKS?
Chang enjoyed the pleasure and privilege of meeting various writers in person and sharing the concerns and ideas through the podcast, which made him ask himself the fundamental questions about his reading and writing behavior. He realizes that he reads and writes as an act of pursuing “what’s more than the joy of eating with a person I love.” Also, he looks back at the world of reading and writing that he belongs, and wonders “which works of our time will become classics.” Chang believes that reading is talking with the past and writing is sending a message to the future. He hopes to write a work that will establish a meaningful conversation with future readers. After weighing the time that allows him to work as a full-time writer, he decides to return to the “world of reading and writing.”
LUCK IS ON ITS WAY FOR YOU
LUCK IS ON IT’S WAY FOR YOU is a story of teenagers who are forced to face violence at home. The narrator of the title is a being called the goddess of luck, or a mischief of fate. This transcendental being grunts with cynical tone, but constantly watches over the children with affectionate eyes. This special voice, ready to appear anytime for those who are desperate for luck, is also the voice of the author. It makes people look back and listen to the heart that they almost missed.
YOU’RE INDEPENDENT, NOT SELFISH
The author, who is a bestselling author and a psychiatrist, diagnoses people who are uncomfortable with the standards set by the world as "independent" rather than "selfish." While following the standards demanded by society, all kinds of interference and criticism from others, and fake feelings and fake desires within, a person independent can't really shake off the thought of “this isn’t right”. So, it becomes a life being led by others. The author provides an easy-to-understand step-by-step psychological strategy for regaining control of life to those who are independent but have not achieved true independence.

Once, she appeared on the news because there was a thief who broke in Sunny Bread and didn't steal any money but ate bread for four hours.
