Write like this...


An author ought to write for the youth of his own generation, the critics of the next, and the schoolmaster of ever afterwards.
F. Scott Fitzgerald

Fitzgerald was young when he wrote this, which means he was talking about writing to youth who listened to the radio and went to movies and read books. The youth of today....
I wish it was true, but I wonder if it's not the same anymore, if too many generations of youth have had their youth hurt badly by filling their imaginations with instant gratification? Still, we can try.

Glad you chimed in.

Though, the fact we're talking about it certainly means his words are timeless.

Further--I believe they mean something. At the time I'm sure there was someone who said the exact same thing... the youth of today!
