Our society is so used to quick and easy communication these days that I recall once hearing about a little joke that people where doing writing ultra-short summaries of classic novels in the form of one tweet on their account.
While this might be a bit of an indication of the not necessary so positive but surely instantaneous desires of our time, it also gave me an idea. Not only can it be a fun game to blow off steam but it can even work as a method in practicing brevity.
For example, in journalistic writing we are encouraged to keep it short – to the point.
This is my dare to see if you can pull it off with these titles from my bookshelves:
Pride and Prejudice
The Cather In The Rye
Long Day’s Journey Into Night
A Streetcar Named Desire
