[up][up] The problem with the whole "physical publishing is DOOOOMED" narrative, I feel, is twofold: It fails to take into account either the potential of small publishing houses (particularly specialist publishers) to fill the void left by larger conglomerates or the power of the physical medium as a sensory experience. The latter is especially important, in that by assuming that the words are the sole thing that matter, we miss the fact that reading a book is very much a tactile experience, one influenced by the size, shape and other physical qualities of the volume in hand. There's also the fact that a word might catch your eye on a page where it wouldn't on a screen, and how the flipping of pages allows for serendipity in the exploration of certain kinds of book. All in all, while I doubt that electronic media is going to die out in publishing, I don't think that the book as a medium is anywhere close to dead.

New week, new articles!

"Fun" fact: I opened so many tabs for this one, I crashed the browser. Also, the computer fan was wheezing. Guess I should be more careful tomorrow:

Teehee.
I guess I'm a New Adult fantasy writer. Hopefully, by the time I'm ready to publish, the genre will be more popular.

[up] I actually thought of you while reading about the topic, in fact. You keep talking about your novel's strange position in terms of audience.

Putting Wilhelm in college and not having Bianca in school at all freed up their schedules a bit, making it more plausible for them to keep up with the things that they do. I don't regret it, even if I might get a flood of rejection letters. I can always write something else in the meantime :P

Humans inferior. Ultron superior.
At the request of JHM: http://johnwiswell.blogspot.com/2012/04/dont-write-fantasy.html

A very interesting article I found.

For some reason, this day has been quite profitable. Either that, or it just clicked in a different way. Opinions?

The it-thingy
When we write as Christians it is important to find a way to present truth to them that draws them in and engages them without blasting them. (...) Kids don't read preaching, they read stories. In order for a child to get the message you have to engage them with a fascinating story. That means you have to drop the pastoral pontifications and doctrinal pronouncements and develop storylines that draw them in.

It always makes me squee inside to find another author who understands and says this. ^_^

It occurs to me that I haven't mentioned how much I enjoy checking through the links you post here, chihuahua 0.

So I will.

Thank you.
A brighter future for a darker age.

I should check these out one of these days.
Stay awesome, people.

[up][up]I agree with this statement.

Also I posted about this in daily as well but I really think people should check out Extra Credits it is techincally not an article and not really writing related but regardless they do often give out good writing/story telling related advice.
