I wonder about the future of the industry I'm hoping to become a part of.
I mean, I don't really believe that people will stop buying and reading books in the printed, bound paper format, but in this electronic age I guess I have to be aware of the different directions publishing may take.
Perhaps it may even be beneficial (either artistically or financially) to look towards electronic means of publication.
If you could distribute a novel at almost no cost to yourself what is a fair price to charge for it?
One dollar? Ten dollars? I'm not even sure what an author gets per copy for an ordinary print version these days.
I probably should find out, but I don't think it's much.
Even if it's only 10c per copy, if I can write a best seller that's still a lot of cash.
Not that it's really about the money, but I want to be able to write professionally. It's hard to write novels when you're working nine-to-five.

I should get Luke to take a photo of me to use on my posts.

I should make myself some kind of dinner.
