Trying Something New Over At Storyteller's Role!
I decided to try an all writing blog again. I have done it before in the past and kind of lost interest along the way. However, teaching at the University of Oklahoma is making constantly think about the way I write.
(Also, I finally got my speech recognition software working again. So, just as I'm doing now, all I have to do is speak into a microphone and the computer types everything into the document for me. So we'll see if my production raises. You still have to plan out what you're going to say and how a story progresses, but it saves a lot on the wear and tear of the hands and the back.)
I'd like to invite you to come by, take a look at Storyteller's Role, and comment or ask questions. I'm going to be thinking about writing a lot over this next year two as publishing has its ups and downs as well. Work still appears to be there for me, but I know the publishing landscape will change some. It already was before the recession hit.
So over at the Storyteller's Role site, I want to write about what I think I see in the business, the skills I think will be necessary to get a writer by, as well as the new opportunities writers have based on the Internet audience. One thing to note, reviews are no longer under the purview solely of magazines and newspapers. Bloggers are increasingly taking over this role and reaping the benefits as new writers worth reading.
It's a new world, people, but there are even more doors now than there were before. You just have to look for them. Good luck, and thanks for being there.
