Have you ever wondered who wrote first and what they actually wrote?
Have you thought what the first story was about?
Have you thought of anything relating to the history of writing?
I’m asking because I’ve just finished listening to a wonderful BBC Radio 4 programme called the Written Word. This 5 episode (30 minutes each) piece traces the history of writing considering how writing helped develop human culture, the impact of the invention of the book, how writing influenced the spread of religion, how the written word was initially used in accountancy, and how writing aided the scientific revolution.
This is a must listen for any serious or would be writer. You can discover more and listen again at the following web site: http://goo.gl/DesY
