The Writing LIfe. You know, there was a big frou frou when people switched from typewriters to word processors. And there’s been another frou frou about contractual rights pertaining to the internet (when a print mag buys FNASR, First North American Serial Rights, does that cover the internet? Are people who are buying stories paying the authors not to post their stories on their personal websites? Are they paying them enough?). But have you noticed that more and more writers have websites? Or at least fan websites? While print magazines, in general, refuse to accept e-mail submissions, they do want your e-mail. And I get my submission information solely over the internet — it’s easier to track down smaller magazines and webzines (obviously), and YOU CAN E-MAIL THE EDITOR TO SEE IF THE DANG THING STILL EXISTS.

Is the internet a part of the writing life now?
