I’m tired of the pages after pages of ongoing and unnecessary graphic explanation. What that tells me is that the author simply can’t sum it up in a few powerful and elequently placed words…
I like a story that flows, from one fact to the next. My last great example is probably “The DaVinci Code”
this book, for as controversial as it was, was so entertaining, so many plot twists and expertly mapped out mysteries. I found myself compelled to analyze the paintings in question to find the answers myself.
I enjoy a read that is pure entertainment, controversy aside, and beliefs aside.
But back to my point, I’m tired of the novels with a forced 100,000 words, instead of the beautiful and powerful short story version.
I think its different when the 100,000 words end up being what it took to tell the compelling story, but what i think we are getting away from is the books natural order.
A book is done when its done, and thats it.
so happy writing…
