Too much information & too much visual instruments have made us lazy & careless. Our brain is always I-washed and step-by-step humanity loses knowledge of the genuine art. Especially of the one that used to be called literature. At present a book publishing is a growing global trend, that, unfortunately, menaces to erase the true sense of such a wonderful & sophisticated phenomenon as writing.
There are too many of those who believed to be born real writers…but they are not. There are too many books that should have never been published even in e-format…because they are real rubbish… And there are too many people who promote writing… when their main goal is only to have a profit from these poor “genii“. All that destroys literature as a genre and it’s time to accept this fact.
To write the book is a big responsibility, I would say too big. For, first of all, it’s a responsibility before God. All our thoughts, ideas, feelings we put in our work are evidences of our outlook and if our moral level is too low, that good writing heritage we could leave to this world? At the same time, the problem of an excessive rubbish publishing must be regarded from another curious point of view: many people write simply because they are lack of self-expression. And they are lack of self-expression because we don’t write letters anymore. Remember, Esteemed Readers, especially those who are already of the advanced age & full of wisdom, there was time when people communicated via letters. They spent hours describing, discussing, arguing something with somebody on paper. They trained their brain, handwriting & patience too. And it always brought its fruit: sooner or later their correspondence became a brilliant piece of a true, alive history.
To write books or not to write – that decision one must make realizing all the consequences, while to write a letter is a great tradition that gives us much more than we expect. We should not give it up, otherwise sooner or later words themselves will disappear & we will remain mute.
