Stealing Books

Another interesting series of blogs from Scrivener-user David Hewson here — this time about book theft, otherwise known as illegal downloading. From an author’s perspective, David takes a disturbingly pessimistic view. The unusually numerous comments below the first post in this series are also worth reading.

David Hewson has followed up his provocative series on digital book theft with more interesting posts, for example this one on opening scenes. As an occasional reader of authors’ blogs, I think David’s is of a very high standard, and of potential use to anybody wanting to learn more about fiction writing.

And yes, I do have an interest in encouraging more people to read it — I want him to keep on writing it!
