Is there a cachet to writing? As I was opining in an earlier entry, writing is now easy with the benefit of computers. There is an explosion of writers out there these days. Ironically, in a time when publishing may be dying, due to the access to written material on the internet, there is a flood of manuscripts overwhelming publishers. Everybody and their aunts are sitting down to write the ‘great American novel.’ Even teens are cranking out fantasy novels. Often people go the route of self-publishing. That, too, is easier and cheaper, thanks to computers and the internet.
