The future is no fun: Self-publishing is the worst
Salon
By Ted Heller: Stick with me on this. In 2001 when my first novel, “Slab Rat,” was published and I was important for about eight weeks, I was asked to write three very short stories for a literary magazine. I believe the maximum amount of time I was allotted for each story was 10 minutes. Sometimes it takes me 10 minutes to get a sentence the way I want it, but I decided to do it. I forget what the other two stories were, but one of them stayed with me: It was about a couple who go to real estate open houses to steal medication.

The author exploitation business
Let's Get Digital
Writing is a glamorous occupation — at least from the outside. Popular depictions of our profession tend to leave out all the other stuff that comes with the territory: carpal tunnel syndrome, liver failure, penury and madness. Okay, okay, I jest. I love being a writer. Sharing stories with the world and getting paid for it is bloody brilliant. It's a dream job, and like any profession with a horde of neophytes seeking to break in, there are plenty of sharks waiting to chew them to bits.

Publishing is booming but it's still gloom on the high street
FutureBook
The recent news that publishing is growing despite the introduction of digital seems to have lifted the spirits of many in the industry. Why is this such a shock? The only thing the introduction of digital has reinforced has been the fact that people love reading and are prepared to take on more convenient ways to do this via e-books and online shopping. The cold chill that should be sweeping through book shop owners everywhere is, "If publishing is flourishing, why are bookshops struggling?"

The thin-skinned writer
Booktrust
By Matt Haig: I have a thin skin. I think it comes from the fact that I suffer from depression from time to time. I had a breakdown years ago. And if the stone falls hard enough the ripples last a lifetime. I woke up last Sunday and felt dark wisps around my head, that ominous life-is-fear feeling. But then, after a morning with the best four-year-old girl in the world, it subsided. (The way out is never through yourself.)
