Many thousands of years ago every single written word was lovingly carved into a soft medium. The craft took years to perfect, and was so expensive to produce that it was only understood by a very select few. As the story of mankind marched on, the invention of ink shrunk the time it took to produce written language by an order of magnitude. Literacy increased with this advancement, but readers only existed in scant numbers at best. With the eventual advent of the printing press the written word, although not free, finally became attainable to the common man. Words had become affordable but were still labor intensive and costly to produce. Finally the worldwide promulgation of the internet has driven the cost of the written word deeper into its downward trend. Where a single word used to be the craft of a professionally trained life-long scribe, It now can be produced and shared the world over for virtually no cost. There are more writers and readers today than there have ever been. The internet has become the oasis for veracious literature lovers who long to escape into worlds of magic and wonder for no cost.
