Internet Publishing

I am continuing to use Tumblr! Writers need blogs. This is an important thing.

So here’s an article I wrote (from On Spec's website)

"Capitalism, Writers, and the Tangled Web"

Web publishing is a hell of a thing. You probably knew this already; you’ve probably already read fiction online, maybe read a comic or watched a web series. Maybe a family member or coworker has emailed you a cute picture or an interesting article. You might even follow a blog, a comic, a YouTube channel, or some other web product. Even if you’re not a regular internet user, you’re probably pretty used to being told that the internet is the wave of the future and that books are going out of style any day now. Well, that may or may not be true. But, whatever happens to books, web publishing is changing the face of literature in a lot of exciting, terrifying, unexpected ways.

Man I am still so bad at tumblr guys how do I work this crazy thing?

Well, this is a step in the right direction, Cat.

I mean, it’s not what you made this tumblr for, but at least it’s something earnest, right? Like, something actually you can care about and not Pibgorn characters. It’s a gift for your beloved sister, which is kind of sweet I guess.

You know what, let’s count this as a success.

Clearly, Cat, if we are going to tumble, we need to redefine success. And “story”.

Oh. Oh no, this isn’t a story either.
At least Pibgorn has a friend now.

What?! This is not a serial novel! No, this is not even a short story!
This is Pibgorn if she was a My Little Pony character!
No, Cat, no! That is NOT what Tumblr is for! Bad!

I decided to Tumble

The fact that I decided to Tumble may or may not mean there will be things posted here.

Gonna be honest with you, my impulsiveness cuts both ways. It’s all a matter of whether or not I feel like it, and I am what old-timey detectives liked to call a “flighty dame”. This means I basically just do whatever I wanna do at any given moment.

But, hey, the tumblr’s actually been created, so that’s a step, right?
