A Story to WriteWriting a story
Smart writers know how to write a story. It' the smart ones who don't.
And I was immediately moved, losing in the pursuit of history. Usually crunchy and unobtrusive, the typeface sometimes showed how much skill was kept in check. What's more, the new typeface's quality has been improved. "What a smart writer!" I am enough of a literature snoop to think that I should have a higher taste - for those who may not be so narrative-oriented as this.
History is the best of novel; it has always been and always will be. Most of the books never came to life and the readings were never pleasant. To orchestrate a convincing story, to attract the reader's interest, to create credible personalities that operate in a recognizable societal environment - none of these was a key concern in most of the stories I discussed.
Appreciating the importance of history is still not seen as ambitious, as if everyone could do it. On the contrary, I suspect: because it is so difficult to write a good story, it is such a tantalizing goal to be rejected as a lower, populistic ability. There were two kinds of authors of the twentieth centuries on his course: the recognized and the ignored.
It was this student family that wrote the stories I reviewed in the 1990' and 2000' - those who didn't care much about the story. Two, when I say the story is the best part of the novel, I'm not saying it's the only thing. I' m assuming it is telling a story, so to speak."
Why, tell a story, of course, and I have no use for it if it is not..... Take your artwork, you can take your books, you can take your music, but give me a good story. I like a story to be a story, and my missus is the same."
A third man, he says in a kind of hanging, regrettable voice: "Yes - oh dear, yes - the novel is telling a story." You can' get this story out of your head.
