Weekend of Wonderful Work

I’m not sure I can rightly call this work. I’m not certain I want to call it work even if it is. I like writing and posting things. I’m struggling to rearrange my routine to be sure that I get a meaningful post up here at least once per week. I say meaningful because I think if somebody’s going to revisit a site there should be something worth looking at.

I don’t know about anyone else, but I am anxious about the things I post simply because I have published written work. I feel that if you’re a writer, you should be able to write a coherent blog post, and that includes avoiding misspelled words and terrible grammar, while still delivering an interesting topic or discussion.

I saw an article relatively recently (see it here: http://www.tor.com/blogs/2013/05/wood-string-and-hard-drives-could-this-be-the-future-of-the-book?utm_source=Feedburner%3A+Frontpage+Partial+RSS+Feed&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+Torcom%2FFrontpage_Partial+%28Tor.com+Frontpage+Partial+-+Blog+and+Stories%29) that was about getting stories delivered in different ways. There are a host of topics I could tie to this, but I’m interested in hearing what other folks think about this vision of the future of books. Is the interactive story the future? Is the story you participate in the future? Is the book as an object of art the future?

What do you think?

  1. Honestly? I think for those of us who love books and who love to read the future of books will be whatever way they are presented to us…however we might be able to get our hands on them. I will never stop loving the feel, the smell, the magic of an actual book, but at the same time there are some wonderful things that digital books have to offer including the ability for me to carry a library with me so that my every whim in reading can instantly be gratified…as long as I keep my battery charged. I want the words, the stories, the ideas of others any way that they are offered to me as long as the story is good.
