The Most Famous Authors And The Push to Remain Prolific Considered

June 08, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 191

Well, word processing on computers, speech recognition software, and the onslaught of new writers and authors into the world has been nothing short of incredible, and it has changed writing, publishing, and literature forever. Things will never be the same again. Now then, some of the more prolific writers, with the household names are starting to feel the heat and the pressure from the competition of all these new writers coming forth like a Tsunami into the industry. Okay so let's talk about this for second shall we?

As a prolific online article writer myself, I have actually had writers and authors that have done it for a living all of their lives, along with reporters condemn me because my writing wasn't as good as theirs, because I wasn't a professional, and I was crowding their space. At first, I thought to myself well, tough luck. And later, I realized that I myself am competing against writers from around the world, many who were just now learning to speak English. Some of their writing isn't all that great, neither was mine when I first started.

The New York Times had an interesting article published on Mother's Day 2012 titled "Writer's Cramp: In the E-Reader Era, a Book a Year Is Slacking," by Julie Bosman where she interviewed several well-known authors who'd generally written one new novel a year during their careers, well until the game changed when the eBook era came to town. The article also mentioned how publishers were expecting their top writers to put out a novella or a short e-book at least every quarter on top of their once a year or every six month novel.

Some of the top writers now have teams of editors, proofreaders, and sidekick researchers and writers to fill in the blanks, and this allows them to put out a new book every month. That's a lot of writing isn't it? Sure it is, and things have dramatically changed no doubt. Now then, I suppose things were easier when the market was closed, and new writers had a tough time breaking in, they had spent years just to get a publisher, and nothing was ever guaranteed.

However, I would submit to you that the world is better off with more writers than it would be without because we get more points of view, perspectives, and creative thinking is way. Now then, I'm not sure that makes it any easier for a highly prolific writer or famous author with all this deluge of competition. But that's the new world, that's what's going on now, and it's time to publish or perish, and to do it in abundance. Indeed I hope you will please consider all this and think on it.
