I can only surmise that the world’s various educational systems are to blame. Hell, I mean, everybody is too damn literate! Absolutely everybody now can write like they went to journalism school, whether they ever actually attended any such institution or not!
What the f#$k?!
You don’t believe me? Then check out any of the squintillion or so other blogs being posted somewhere around the planet at this very second.
Which is why I am here today advocating the gentle (and very Zen) art of Bonsai blogging. This I believe being the only answer to the very real risk we all face of being swamped by a veritable tsunami of well-written words.
So keep it short and pithy, people, when blogging. Prune and condense your prose. Make your new thought-piece about myopic biopic producers bring to mind the awe and wonder that a miniature, 1000-year-old Japanese maple tree might provoke.
But how? How is this to be achieved? I hear you demand to know.
Well, here’s my sole tip: Come to the point quickly, or get your hand off it!
Explanation: Believe me, I’m in no way endorsing the literary equivalent of premature ejaculation per se. But simply pointing out that a “good” quickie quite often beats (hands down) a whole lot of writerly intellectual foreplay that hasn’t any actual real grunt or thrust behind it.
So, what do you say? Because I still haven’t heard your answer to my titular question…
PS. If you’re a dude, my question remains largely rhetorical, okay.
