I think that some books are great, but to long.
100 years ago people have more time to read. There was no TV, Computer or Smart Phone…
Today we don’t have to much time for reading. There is to much going on…
Well, I’m not any authority on writing but only a “Rookie Writer” – and I think, that SHORTER IS BETTER. And this is only my view on writing.
Personally I don’t read Blog Posts with more than 500 words. Well, sometimes I give “Like” because I like the beginning or pictures.
And I don’t read or buy books with more than 300 pages. Maybe only “short stories” or something extremely interesting.
I just don’t have a time.
Myself – I can not write long paragraphs, because of my poor English. 🙂 !!!
And I’m very good on “short writing”. I can make even very short story shorter.
Let’s take Latin phrase: “VENI, VIDI, VICI”.
Julius Cesar wrote to describe shortly his victory in his short war.
It means: “I CAME, I SAW, I CONQUERED”.
How clever. I love it!
But I will make it shorter: “I CAME, I CONQUERED”. I will skip “I SAW”, Because we know he wasn’t blind, so he saw… 🙂 !
And than, to conquer, he has to came there… So I will skip: “I CAME”.
And we have this all nice and short: “I CONQUERED”. In Latin: “VICI”. 🙂 , 🙂 , 🙂 !!!
Anyway, if you are not Hemingway, keep it short. 🙂 !!!
God Bless you all.
