IWSG: Industry Changes

It’s time for another group posting of the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! founded by Alex J. Cavanaugh. Time to release our fears to the world – or offer encouragement to those who are feeling neurotic. If you’d like to join us, click on the tab above and sign up. We post the first Wednesday of every month. Your words might be the encouragement someone needs. You can also join us on twitter using the hashtag #IWSG, or on the Facebook page.

Now, IWSG hosts have changed up the format in an effort to make it more fun and interactive.Every month, they will announce a question that members can answer in their IWSG Day post. These questions may prompt you to share advice, insight, a personal experience or story. Include your answer to the question in your IWSG post or let it inspire your post if you are struggling with something to say. 

Don’t forget to visit others that day to see their answers. Want to join, or learn more? Visit our - Sign-up List.

JULY QUESTION There have been many industry changes in the last decade, so what are some changes you would like to see happen in the next decade?

MY ANSWER - I feel that as a result of the pandemic, we are seeing an increase in the return to people reading large amounts for entertainment. As a result, I would subsequently love to see an increase in the number of publishing houses, and the material they are willing to print. I would also love to see the publishing houses taking a risk on newer authors as well.

What industry changes would you like to see?

I think readers are probably finding new books as well since many have been unable to visit the bookstore which is dominated by a select few.

An increase in publishing houses would be good, if they can stick around. So many end up going under.

Good point. I know for me I've been reading a lot more on my Kindle due to the library being closed. So it'd be interesting to see if this sparks ebook sales.
Happy ISWG!

It will be interesting to see if this happens. For now, be the change that you want to see in the world. I've been too stressed out to read or write, personally. Getting over that now. But it's a slow slog. Have a great July!
