One thought on “Creativity Under Pressure In The New Media Landscape

  • January 20, 2012 at 10:49 am

    I have been thinking about so many of these things as I return to the working world after a 10-year-break as a mom. As a former reporter (fast writing) and a poet (slow writing), I see what’s happening on the internet and I get all clenched up too. Sure, it’s great to develop the discipline of writing well quickly, but I too feel so much gets lost. Just like fast food and slow food, flavor, depth, inner calm, real insights — I find I prefer those in the things I read and that take time and revision. It’s all going to head and not heart. And I also worry about my ability to keep up and find a place or several places where what I have to offer is valuable enough — I’m not 25 anymore! Anyhow, keep sharing what you discover on this –I’d like to hear more.
