As writers we sometimes dread someone else beating us to the punch on a story idea but then we take a deep breath and realize that every story can be told in many different ways.
It always seemed that as soon as I thought up a title or a story idea that someone else got to it before I did. Now, I write with the goal in mind of bringing my voice to that story to give the reader a different experience.
One area that will benefit writers in this endeavor is the price war for ebook readers.
With ebook readers writers can now reach a much greater and more diverse audience. As I've said in previous posts, it wasn't that long ago that traditional publishers shunned ebooks. Now everyone is getting into the distribution of ebooks. Some authors dropped by their traditional publishers are finding a new and better life in the world of ebooks.
