In a world ruled by 0s and 1s, how can writers thrive? By being distinctively human. This is an amazing time to be a writer, but we have to change our habits and work together. Social media can be an amazing tool to build a platform for a lifetime career, or a horrible time-suck that makes us want to drink heavily. Social media isn't the problem. The machines aren't the problem. We are. When we change our approach, technology becomes an amazing force amplifier and time-saver.
