The Morning Pages: 07/30/12


Random House is looking to expand its brand by creating its own TV channel.

After 125 years of publication, the Writer Magazine is going "on hiatus."

Many authors fear going into self-publishing because it could "kill their career." Dean Wesley Smith explains why this is a misconception, not to mention a baseless fear. He makes a good point: getting published traditionally is a shot in the dark, and you have a better chance of building a career by taking a chance on yourself, even if some of the established publishing houses look down on you for it.

In the future, there will be no more professional writers. I think "authors" would be a better term. After all, Tv and script writing isn't really going anywhere.
