Why do we resist change? Historically, big shifts in society have often produced incredible hybrids and new models advancing technology, community, and lifestyle.
When first experiencing a shift, we tend to get our thongs in a bunch, spin out of control with misguided theories and flap about with depressive bouts of unfounded angst.
Yes, the current publishing model is like a hot air balloon caught in a jet stream. But heck, maybe it's like Beta and VHS? The movie industry continued to thrive after home movies arrived on the scene. Suddenly, video stores popped up everywhere generating new streams of jobs and revenue. Entire sections of electronic retail stores are devoted to video sales.
Times are a changin'. Instead of resisting the inevitable, why not embrace the possibilities and look for innovations in the jet stream of change? Writers have the gift of creativity, so let's write a new story.
