His most well-known novels are The Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Miserables, however they’re a small instance of the various works that he produced on the wonderful fee of over one million phrases a 12 months.
If these writers–with paper, pen, and pencil–could impact the quantity of writing they did, then writers at present ought to simply do as a lot. Writers at present have computer systems and phrase processors, with spell checkers and grammar checkers, and different aids that make the method simple and pleasing. Most likely what’s missing is the main focus and imaginative and prescient that these writers had. Maybe lives at present are too filled with computer systems, tv, movies, theater, music, and different distractions that impinge on the author’s time. But is feasible with planning and self-discipline to place concepts to paper in poems, tales, novels, articles, essays, and so forth. Though the competitors to be revealed in all probability exceeds that of author of the nineteenth century and the twentieth century, the way in which to publication is extra different and accessible.
