Reality Check

I had a conversation the other day with one of my uncle’s friends who worked in broadcasting. My future isn’t exactly bright and shiny.

Of course, I knew I’d have to up my hitting deadlines game and work crazy hours. But the money almost isn’t worth it.

Lots of people get hired from internships and end up quitting because the salary isn’t what it once was.

What caused the decline? It’s simple: the Internet. With the rise and prominence of today’s social media, anybody can post about anything they want.

While social media has made it easier for people to stay connected, it has also saturated the Internet – and society, for that matter – with content. We can get our news from practically anywhere.

I think we’ve also been spoiled by instant gratification. Today, if we don’t know the answer to a question, we can simply Google it and find out in seconds. We don’t have to wait for someone to tell us.

But that doesn’t mean I’m going to give up. I’m going to keep writing whatever comes to me. Whether it be fiction or nonfiction, it’ll be something important to me. I hope you don’t mind me sharing my opinions.
