Finding time to write
Writer's Digest
Last week an accomplished newspaper columnist approached me in yoga class. "How goes the writing?" I asked. She turned her chin away from me in a charming princess fashion that she has cultivated. "I have been very bad. I just can't find the time or inspiration." (Note: I am paraphrasing, but the tilt of the chin in the air was quite real.)

Should young writers 'wait their turn'?
New Republic
In what might be the most highbrow get-off-my-lawn ever written (19 literary names dropped; references to typewriter brands; a dig at the new New Republic, and some untranslated, Kant-referencing German for good measure), fiction writer and essayist Cynthia Ozick complains in The New York Times that today's young writers aren't content to wait their turn.

Self-publishing: The good, the bad and the even worse
WND
Only a few years ago, self-publishing printed books through Publish on Demand publishers was becoming very popular. It represented a big step forward in what was then still known as "vanity press" — authors who could not or would not secure publishing deals with "real" publishers could instead print their work on their own terms for a fee.

The case for libraries
Publishers Weekly
Publishers are running out of space. Not in their headquarters, some of which are larger and more imposing than ever, but in retail. The number of booksellers has been dwindling since the demise of Borders, and the largest book retailer today is Amazon, which has no physical space at all. So the question is, where can publishers showcase new books?

Why writers love to hate the M.F.A.
The New York Times
It was peak reading season, and Lan Samantha Chang, director of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, was gamely juggling a call from a reporter, interruptions from her 7-year-old as well as a 10 percent surge in applications to the University of Iowa's Master of Fine Arts program in creative writing. Chang was in the thick of decisions about who would fill 50 spots evenly divided between the fall fiction and poetry workshops.

Tablet: Dead or alive?
INMA
The fourth quarter of 2014 was the first with lower tablet sales since the market debut of the Apple iPad in Q2 2010, with 12 percent fewer sales and 67 million devices worldwide. In comparison to the booming smartphone and especially booming phablet market, it was a disaster. Apple tried to work against this downsize with a large advertising campaign, but it couldn't solve the problem.

Newspapers hunt for new readers on Instagram
American Journalism Review
Instagram launched in October 2010 with a flurry of interest and cash, so why did The New York Times wait until last month to start a general account? In short: exposure and connection. Like most news organizations, The Times constantly wrestles with which social platforms it should incorporate into its media strategy, and to what extent. Yet some networks demand attention by virtue of how many people are using them, and Instagram is one of those juggernauts.

A visit to the coolest culinary garden around
Yahoo
When is a tomato more than just a tomato? When it's grown in The French Laundry Culinary Garden in Yountville, Calif. This summer, more than 50 varieties of tomatoes planted in the garden will be transformed by The French Laundry kitchen team in ways that will make you question the very nature of the fruit. The chefs will dry them into sheets, press them into tomato water to use as a stock, make them into jam, and can them whole.
