There are two types of writers in the world today.
The first are legacy writers. These are people who still believe in the days of Hemingway, Faulkner, Dostoevsky, and Bukowski (among others). To become a writer, they believe, you must wear a chapeau, smoke a corn cob pipe, stare out the window and wait for inspiration to strike. Better yet, you must detach yourself from the world, find a cabin in the woods (God forbid it has Internet), and dedicate the next 10 years of your life to writing the next Great American Novel. And if you die doing it, even better. You have lived, and suffered, the life of a true “writer.”
We think that’s a bunch of bologna.
The second are Digital Writers. These are people who, in the age of the Internet, have realized the inefficiencies that kept so many talented writers from being heard 30, 40, 50, 100+ years ago. Digital Writers don’t run away from life and seek refuge in a cabin—they incorporate their writing into their daily lives. Digital Writers don’t write by themselves (hiding away in their apartment)—they Practice In Public using social publishing platforms like Twitter, Quora, Medium, etc. Digital Writers don’t guess what readers want to read about—they gather data, learn what works in real time, and iterate on a daily basis.
We believe there has never been a better time in human history to be a writer.
