I started out by saying I didn’t want to be a lone voice in the wilderness.
Apparently I am, still.
Well, that might be a little harsh in the circumstances, but the monkey on my shoulder is telling me I should start writing something that someone might want to read.
I guess the trials and tribulations of a writer who basically is a lone voice in the wilderness is as boring as everyday life.
I mean, who wants to read about someone’s miserable, or, on rare occasions, good, day.
Yet, if I was to pick up any book written in the 18th and 19th century, all it seems to be about is everyday life, but what makes it interesting is the fact we never lived it, nor realized how hard it was for some, and how good it could be for others.
Best not to be born poor.
So, I was wondering, in 200 years time when someone sits down to read about the vicissitudes of my life, will it be interesting to know what it was like back in the ‘old days’ that is really today for me?
Interesting how a change in time frame makes something interesting, and ‘classic’ literature.
But one difference between then and now is the fact we, today, can write about science fiction, spies and all manner of events that come out of recent inventions. Odd too, that people are still the same, those that tell the truth, those that are pure of heart, those who are as evil as the devil himself.
Some things never change.
Just the when, where, and how.
