Has Publishing Killed the Joy of Writing?

I love reading Alexander Zoltai’s blog, Notes from An Alien, because he always has alternative viewpoints on the art of writing. Take a recent share he did from an author who is losing her joy of writing thanks to the tangled mess of publishing.

Writers generate words, but with all the new tools available to us, writers also market, edit, format, lay out, publicize, create graphics… it can be overwhelming.

How does one person do it all and still keep the creativity flowing? I’ve recently experienced this burn out myself, so when I read Vivienne Tuffnell’s The Loss of Joy I could empathize.

Read Tuffnell’s post here and see if you too feel like the joy of authoring has ebbed.

Alexander Zoltai (& Sena Quaren) on Journal Jabber tonight

JJ 1Hear here (get it? ;p)

With the government in partial shut down, the environment in a mess and human to human violence at a frenetic peak, there is no better time to hear from Alexander Zoltai and his book, Notes from an Aliena book written to show mankind a better way.

Tune in and hear from a wise alien and her human counterpart as they impart a message of peace… and hope.
