I think the transition of a writer is to be an influencer, or an idealist or entrepreneurship.
Hey Lance, really thought provoking article. Makes me think again about the path of writing.

Indeed you are right. Influencer would be to go the social media path. Idealist probably won’t make you a living unless you go into speech writing for politics or NGO/philanthropy or join politics yourself and write a manifesto or something! Entrepreneurship is not every creative person’s cup of tea. See my conversation with Cheo earlier. You have to decide for yourself whichever path you take. Only you know what you are inclined towards!
