Has anyone noticed how the quality of writing has slowly slipped away over the past 35 years?...


Reading a lot of modern poetry and stories, it seems as though a lot of it is just people expressing their anger rather bluntly on paper. Even music lyrics picked up on the trend. Not only that, everything is so dumbed down so we don't have to think too hard about it. It's sad but as such I find it a reason to stay away from modern literature. Am I wrong for doing that?

    if you don't write to please, you need to accept that one possible result is that you may not be widely read.

    And in this day and age, you can't wait to be discovered- you need to share yourself w/ the world and publicize yourself

    Good luck :)

    I don't know about that. There was some real garbage written before political correctness as well...
