If Books Were Listicles?
What if the lengthy novels or plays turn into listicles? What will their titles look like? To know, read along.
We are living in a world where everyone is busy with one thing or the other. Nobody has a lot of time to invest in one single thing especially reading. When we said reading, we didn’t mean reading out of pleasure but reading to make ourselves informed. We always have this urge to know more but in less time. Therefore, a certain type of content writing has come into existence and is getting popular day by day. It’s called “listicle”, it is an informal term for articles which are written in a list-based format.
It has been here for quite a time now and has been adopted by every genre; you can find listicles on news, entertainment, sports, education, health, lifestyle and whatnot. Listicles are so in because they are short and to the point, that means you can learn a lot with minimal investment of your time. Lengthy articles tend to turn readers off because first, they don’t have that much time to invest, second, they are likely to lose interest midway. Here’s why most people are usually seen cutting their lengthy informative articles into short and sweet listicles which prove to attract readers.
