My 3rd novel wasn’t meant to be a sequel to the 2nd novel in the first place. Then something happened. Characters began to beg to be included in the story. Thus, a sequel was born.

The Ancient Art of Writing Between the Lines

Submitted by on October 19, 2009 – 06:002 Comments

If there is an art of reading between the lines, it will be a must that the art of writing between the lines existed. If writers had not started writing between lines, how would the readers learn how to read between them? Or maybe, readers were beginning to read between the lines because of the shifting culture that caused the writers to write differently? Sounds like a chicken and egg situation to me.

Journalists are supposed to write about truths that people want to know. They are supposed to get to the root of a story, explore it inside out, find an explanation to it, and report to the readers. But how could that happen when they begin to write between the lines? Isn’t the truth distorted? How can they throw themselves around in hope that no one will notice that they really do not know anything about the topic they wrote if the truth is what is supposed to be revealed? These are questions that many had questioned.

I, personally, believe that the journalists did not write between the lines in hope for others to not notice their inefficiency because they do know their stuff. I believe that they have possessed this art of writing because the reading habits of the readers have changed. Readers no longer take words used directly but rather, explore it and find the meanings behind what was written. Therefore, journalists can no longer send out their message directly because it would be read wrongly. Rather, they will have to write between the lines in order to get their message across.
