TL;DR Books suck. Physical representations are cool. Reading text in storytelling sucks. On internet forums text is ok because the things people usually have to say are short and to the point. I'm bringing this up because I have always felt that text in storytelling is an ancient and obsolete form of media. I find books boring and irksome because they make me work by having to imagine things. When I want to be entertained I do not want to have to overly engage myself imagining scenarios for characters and what they look like etc. When a person can watch an event take place it becomes much easier for someone to comprehend such an event. The metaphors, alliterations, and descriptions make me feel only as though the writer is trying to show off that they can in fact write these things in and I only find them as filler. Reading is also much more time consuming than film as reading a description of an event takes a much shorter time than actually viewing it. For example a writer could write a description like, "he touched the mistress slowly and softly as though she were a window ready to crack" vs how long it would actually take to watch a man touch a woman. Books have been written for centuries because it was impossible to have a physical representation of a story beforehand other than a theatrical performance. But now that we as humans have the technology capable to achieve such things, i feel as though films are how storytelling should be taught in our educational systems and how all stories are told from here on forward.
