The Roaring Twenties…

The Roaring Twenties are upon us once more… Looking Ahead in Writing: One hundred years ago, in January, 1920, Woodrow Wilson was President. World War I was in the past. The 18th Amendment, prohibiting “intoxicating liquors,” was the law of the land. The 19th Amendment, guaranteeing women the right to vote, was soon to be, eight months in the future. It seems like ancient history, but there are people alive today who were alive then. The world was on the brink of change, a lot of change. The quill pen had given way to the typewriter, which would hold sway until the 1980s, when “word processing” appeared. Over the past decade, online publishing, self-publishing, print-on-demand, author websites, podcasts, videos, online channels, Twitter, FaceBook, Instagram, and Pinterest, have created a vastly different landscape from what went before us. The world is a different universe for sure– from now, ‘til then. Gazing into the decade(s) ahead, what do you think? What do you expect? We hear it all the time: “We’re only at the tip of the iceberg.”
