Interesting Facts about the career

  1. Gutenberg Bible

The Gutenberg Bible was among the earliest major books printed using mass-produced movable metal type in Europe. It marked the start of the "Gutenberg Revolution" and the age of printed books in the West. The book is valued and revered for its high aesthetic and artistic qualities as well as its historic significance. It is an edition of the Latin Vulgate printed in the 1450s by Johannes Gutenberg in Mainz, in present-day Germany. Forty-nine copies (or substantial portions of copies) have survived. They are thought to be among the world's most valuable books, although no complete copy has been sold since 1978. In March 1455, the future Pope Pius II wrote that he had seen pages from the Gutenberg Bible displayed in Frankfurt to promote the edition. It is not known how many copies were printed; the 1455 letter cites sources for both 158 and 180 copies. The 36-line Bible said to be the second printed Bible, is also referred to sometimes as a Gutenberg Bible, but maybe the work of another printer.


2. Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie suffered from dysgraphia which meant she could not write legibly; as a result, she dictated all of her novels.


3. Writer’s block is totally normal

Neuroscience can explain this disturbing phenomenon. When creative writers stare at the screen in despair and can’t type one word — it’s actually fine. You can’t be creative and original at every moment of your life! Artistic activities are very complex for the brain. We have to use different regions of our hemispheres actively, and that’s exhausting. But don’t worry! You should take a break, or distract yourself for some time (hours, or possibly days). Your brain will restore energy and will be ready to produce new creative ideas! So, colygraphia (a scientific name for writer’s block) is totally normal. Don’t panic, and take a deep breath! You can start writing tomorrow.
