Glacial changes are occuring on the writing landscape. In my short life—well, at least in geological ages—I’ve seen earth-shaking changes from literal “cutting and pasting” to word processing, from print to pixels, and from reaching perhaps several thousand with an individual’s “bulk mailing” to being available to over 2 billion Internet users. “The times, they are a changin’!”

So, today’s writer must adapt to the changes or become as extinct as the dodo bird. I’m speaking at the growing Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference (The longest name in writers’ conferences!) I’m anxious to learn new trends and ways of communicating more effectively in the constantly-changing industry! Here are some of my favorite posts on keeping up with the changes:

Don’t become a digital dinosaur

Hard times for “hard news”

How to hook today’s Internet users

Don’t sabotage your writing career
