Writing text and the creating the mental space we have in our lives to digest words has a long history! We started chiselling symbols on stone, parchment, paper and now it’s screen. Has the way we communicate with words changed? Yep. #spellinghasgoneforstarters.
But has long form text disappeared? Or are we still interested in novels, and places where we disappear into the minds of others through words?
The strength of fiction, particularly sci-fi and imagined worlds has by no means diminished. Hunger Games, Game of Thrones, Harry Potter. All the characters, situations, place, internal drama are brought to life by …. words. Then the visuals take over.
