Writing on the Ether | Jane Friedman

Re: the publishing industry. There are a lot of shrieking voices out there, with accusations flying back and forth about how misguided, puerile and offensive the other side is being.

"You've been brainwashed!" "You're a whining wanna-be!"

"You're just afraid of being edited!" "You're a slave and a coward!"

"You're deliberately misleading people!" "No, YOU'RE deliberately misleading people!"

"Amazon is awesome! New York sucks!" "New York is awesome! Amazon sucks!"

"Amazon sucks! New York sucks! You're all in it together!"

Fortunately, there is this post by Porter Anderson:
