How a Mystery Writer Views the World.
Thanks for that! The first thing I looked at sparked an idea for my developing concept of a 'world without words'. Just jotted down a few more world-building aspects.But it's Monday here already, so can't get sucked into this site just now.
Cool! But according to some rhetoricians, a world without words cannot exist--at least not our individual consciousnesses.But do expand!
Expanding:the gist of the idea is not without all words, but taking Farhenheit 451 further and doing away with all printed words. I've been spinning away on what a world like that would be like and have come up with a slew of ideas about religion, hidden books in places you wouldn't normally come up with, the power relationships, why the words were done away with, and how people change as a result of the lack of a printed language.I've not written spec fic before, so this will be my first attempt. Since it's a big project, it will be a while before I get to it. Still have two mysteries to get through.And I lied a little in my comment. I couldn't resist diving into that website and read some fascinating stuff about the Piri Reis map, which I knew of from a book I read about Columbus's trips to NA. But I hadn't seen it 'up close' before.
Fascinating! It sounds a little like 1984, too. It seems like a book I would like to read.Glad you liked the site!
