Three Things Writers Don't Need Anymore

Cursive, publishers, and Microsoft Word.

I couldn't agree more, although writing seem less about what writers need than what they want.

Driven by habit, socialization, intoxication and the persistence of memory, writers find a thin layer of creativity between needs and wants.

If we choose to use a particular software, or notebook for writing, admittedly we could do without it. Why would we want to?

Publishing? Anything beyond social media, including blogs, should be a for profit endeavor with a business plan, upon which most writers will never successfully embark.

Or, as someone said, "you can't always get what you want. But if you try sometimes...well you might find, you get what you need."

Nice post, John
