I’m looking into my crystal ball and I can see the future for all writers. As we all know, print media is fast losing ground to digital media. So what are we writers to do?
I just finished taking a 6-week multimedia workshop at San Francisco State University where I learned to combine photos, images, music and audio narrative with a short story I wrote called “The Magic Elixir.” It is now possible for writers to present their work on the Internet, not only in written form but in audio-visual form as well. The exploding Internet has opened up a whole new world for writers, what with blogs, wikis and social media websites such as Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, along with the writing website, AuthorConnect. It’s the dawning of a new age. The possibilities for writers are limitless.
