Lots of book lovers and printed-word lovers are tearing their hair over the “demon” technology
of the web and electronic devices that are heralding the demise of words. But words will live as long as people do. Words are a major part of the way we connect with one another. In the 4th century BC, Plato feared writing as much as many still fear the web and technology—even if they don’t admit that fear. Poor Plato! That was just writing by hand (chirography, it’s called—yes, this is the domain of the word guru!)—imagine what his neurosis over the printing press might have been. Little news flash for Plato: Without chirography—and later, typography—no one today would know about him or Socrates. Or a multitude of other thinkers and writers who have shaped our world over the past 2,000-plus years.
Technology has been part of civilization forever—from the wheel and hieroglyphics to the web and smartphones—invention and innovation are among the best human activities. Creativity is life! And the Internet gives us the opportunity to connect more than ever before. Most of this connecting involves writing. That isn’t a problem. The problem is that not everyone can write. It isn’t a crime or a big deal. Grammar and punctuation bore a lot of people, and spelling rules can drive people nuts. E-mailing and texting and chatting have caused these skills to be considered less important, which is all well and good in semiformal and/or casual communication, but it has made a lot of people think that they can write—and maybe they can … but maybe they can’t.
Writing quality is subjective, but professional writers have the expertise to capture the reader’s attention—and hold it. No matter what type of written material you seek to create, the reader’s attention is what you need to make the writing effective. Whether you want to create your own website, start a new business, write the great American novel, craft a great presentation, manuscript/book proposal, business plan, or any other written material that matters to you, the quality of the writing is essential. Simply put, whatever you write needs to read well. It needs to be a page-turner, even if those “pages” are the computer screen.
