Sunday Musings for 15th February 2015 – #MuseItUp #DaffodilAndTheThinPlace

Daffodil and the Thin Place 300dpiChris had this to say about the Sunday Musings for this week:   ‘Now this might be a tad argumentative or controversial but let’s give it a shot: Is social media killing writing?’

Hmm, what do you think? Here’s my reply:

Social media makes it easier to exhibit one’s writing to a world-wide audience. However, now there are more authors than ever displaying their work, so I’m not sure that it helps the average author to make much of an impression on the reading public. From the point of view of authors promoting their writing, therefore, I don’t think social media will make much difference. But since Facebook, Twitter and the like are so addictive, it may be that writers spend more time trawling through them than actually writing which will definitely have a detrimental effect on their work! As in most man-made institutions, social media can be used or abused and I think it may change the way we present our writing or even how we write, for example, 140 character flash fiction on Twitter but I don’t think it has the power to kill writing.
