Writing in a wiki world

28 09 2011

At Maranatha this morning we are hearing a panel discussion on the world of publishing. One comment made is that we are living in a wiki world. What that means is that so many people are writing at random on the facebook page or a blog or twitter or google plus, and often what they write is not thought through. Once it’s on the internet, it’s there forever. It sticks. The moral: be sure you write something you won’t be ashamed of later on.

One hot topic is that of self-publishing versus going through a publishing company. Today’s panel is suggesting you be very careful if you want to self-publish. Be sure to read the fine print. Also be sure you know how much work you are committing to as far as marketing, etc.

A good point made today was the importance of having a good editor review your work before it’s submitted. It can make a good book a great one. Food for thought!
