I think I’ve changed a lot, and it’s not because I’ve become a liberal from being a conservative — it’s just that I thought about it more. The issues are so complex, you can’t just go with some ideological mantra for each substantive issue.
17-year-old Jonathan Krohn • Giving a bit of insight into his current political beliefs during an interview with Politico. Krohn, who became a viral sensation among conservatives after delivering a speech at the 2009 CPAC while only thirteen years old, now says that he’s abandoned his former social conservative values. And while he admitted he’d likely vote for President Obama if he was old enough, Jonathan stopped short of saying he was a full-blown liberal, Democrat, or progressive. “I’m tired of being an ideology,” he said, “and it’s not fun and it gets boring and it’s not who we are as individuals.” (hat tip to our own Matthew Keys) source (viafollow)

It used to be that once a year was a big deal. You could saturate the market. But today the culture is a great big hungry maw, and you have to feed it.
Thriller author Lisa Scottoline • Talking about how the era of the e-book has increased her workload. She used to do one book a year; now she does two — writing at a pace of 2,000 words a day, seven days a week. Other authors are writing short stories for e-book formats as a promotional tool for their longer tales. The cause? A market that is more reluctant to pay full-price for a full-length book but thinks nothing of a 99-cent novella. Have your reading habits changed thanks to the Kindle and Nook? source (viafollow)

New writer at ShortFormBlog: Manic, Chill’s Scott Craft

Greetings Internet! My name is Scott Craft, and I’m thrilled to say that I’ll be joining the amazing team here at SFB as a weekend contributor. A bit about me: I’m an IT professional, native Texan, and current Denver resident who you will rarely spot without headphones. An avid fan of hip hop, in my spare time I blog about music, being bipolar, politics, and more at my personal blog “Manic, Chill”. Now back to the news you care about, in the shortest form possible!

New staff writer said hello, then waved

I promise to keep this short. It’s tradition to do so around here, since it’s our name. I’m Sami Main, a spunky writer that is way too excited to be joining the SFB team. I’m a journalism junior at the University of Florida; when I’m not having an opinion about the Oxford comma, I can be found on Tumblr and Twitter. I’d rather be raising the roof than the debt ceiling.
