Good literature should have rhythm. Words should warm to the lips and seduce them enough to want to spit out the next one. It`s not necessary to stumble completely into the world of iambic pentameters but a piece of work should have its own pace. It doesn`t matter what you write about if you use the proper words in the proper order then anything can become entertaining. Osyan Abgbgdugllah had a point in his reference to African rhythm. Indeed any language will have a rhythm which may not always translate across boundaries. This makes it fairly impossible for an international bestseller to be truly international without a compromise to language. To abide by strict rules is to render sterility. Do you want to read a novel or a textbook? In my eyes it is this rhythm in words which modern writers have overlooked. It is as if their creativity has come from a visual (Film) market rather than a true love for the written word.
Crikey, this jam doughnut`s exploded everywhere.
