Can we project into an uncertain future? We need to build our own models, built on facts, the past, human nature, and of what could be. Authors can do this. Let’s try.
Will people buy books during the recovery? Yes, books are still a relatively inexpensive joy and need. But they may afford a few less books.
Today sucks, but writers can do things now to prepare for the inevitable day when we can circulate again.
They can take time now to:
- Learn, conduct research, and network
- Build up a reserve of blog posts, podcasts, videos and content
- Be more active on social media
- Create speeches for future events
- Develop online courses
- Writing additional books
