How Many Words Would a Writer-Person Write if a Writer-Person Could Write Words?
Sometimes I forget how lucky I am.
I mean, I live in the world that I live in. Frankly, it doesn't get much better than that. Thank goodness I wasn't born in a country where females are viewed as property, and therefore not worth educating. Thank goodness I wasn't born into a place where books don't exist, or a time where only the rich could read because only the rich could afford books. Or with a disability that would mean the same things.
Of course, there's always the oral tradition. This post isn't about that, though.
It's just a concept that I've been philosophizing to myself about today. What would happen if everyone (and I mean everyone) in the world could write a story?
Tell me what you think. Do you think things would be any different, or would they stay pretty much the same?
