El oficio de escribir

escribir-para-la-redEsta tarde terminé la lectura de Escribir para la red. Reflexiones sobre la nueva (y vieja) escritura informativa ‘online’, libro colectivo coordinado por José Manuel Pérez Tornero y Santiago Tejedor, con el sello de la Universidad Autónoma de Barcelona.

La propuesta es muy interesante en el tratamiento de los temas y diseño. Resalto esa característica porque la forma suele no atenderse en el comentario de un libro, aunque la virtud mayor es la conjunción de esos y otros rasgos, como la brevedad, diversidad y practicidad.

En cada uno de los 41 capítulos hay conceptos, estrategias, ideas, consejos y recomendaciones bibliográficas sencillas y claras.

Obra valiosa para periodistas, o simples aficionados a la lectura y la escritura en esta era de redes sociales, marcada por la instantaneidad, fugacidad y escasez de tiempo para dedicarlo a textos farragosos y anticuados.

Retomo mi lectura de la biografía no autorizada de Eduardo Galeano (Galeano. Apuntes para una biografía, de Fabián Kovacic), un maestro del periodismo y la palabra precisa y preciosa. En una entrevista habría dicho: (Tengo) fe en el oficio de escribir, la certeza de que es posible hacerlo sin venderse ni alquilarse. La fe que la lucha por la dignidad humana vale la pena, aunque sea para perder.
