Technology changes so fast that it amazes me. I am conflicted at times by this issue. Although it is fun to try new gadgets, it is hard to keep up with all that is going on in the technology area, especially in the world of electronics. I do my best to keep up, at least to be informed. It seems that as soon as one masters a gadget, another one appears, faster and better, with more applications and elements of awe.
This is the world that we live in, fast and techie, like it or not. As writers, we can take advantage of these applications and technological advances or we can just get behind, and have less exposure and opportunities. Eventually, the world keeps moving, readers evolve, genres do as well – even if it does not seem so obvious. Embracing technology is opening doors; attempting to get up to speed on it, might be suicide for many, but at least we try.
Young writers are born with the speed and skills of a new generation of super techies, they are the future of writing, in tune with today’s readers, and at par with readers of the future. Writing will evolve, at least in the mediums in which it is presented, as well as in the way stories are created, and future words come to be. New technology creates new words … new worlds.
