Where do books and literature play a part in creating the tapestries of society?
And how can we as authors and content creators use this to our advantage?
There is a power that books possess in the teaching, and in the learning across cultures and this same power carries on our wisdom and insights for future generations.
We learn from, not only, the celebrations and comedy of the past, we also learn an abundance from the brutality showcased across literature. We garner this history and information that continues to shape societies today.
It is fun to recognize through literature how far society has come and yet how little we have truly changed.
The intention of this post is to ask how this applies to your writing? Whether you are working on an epic novel or a nonfiction manuscript to debut your products or services, you are creating a time capsule.
The assets that contribute to the tapestries of society across books and novels alike include aspects of our cultures. Assets like food, wine, clothing yes. The two primary contributors that I encourage you to explore and study for your own narrative are:
- The dialogue and language that you include
- The beliefs and conflicts that are exemplified
How is your narrative maintaining these assets of your culture or the culture that you are writing of?
Remember that you are writing a time capsule! Are you crafting this as a Legacy for your future generations?
