Fiction is Mightier than Fact


I can really appreciate what British writer Sean Gabb is saying. I’d just like to add a cautionary insert to his words of wisdom. And this is largely the need to counter the quickness of the internet. Writer’s need to learn to respect your readers. And by that I mean, don’t become like the Journalists and scream ‘negativistic , critiques’ at your readers or even other writers. When you do that, your writing suffers and you become a short screaming headline…or worse your ‘negative’ goes Viral on the Internet. You’ll be tempted, but for god’s sake…don’t succumb. Don’t become another curmudgeon! There are already too many arrogant curmudgeons publishing. Be positive!
