If you’re a tailor you often have to adjust sizes to suit the client. The same goes for writing, whether fiction or non-fiction. Publishers and editors (and therefore agents) often demand a particular “size” when soliciting or considering any piece of work. They not only have valuable space to fill, but voracious readers to appease.
When size matters, don’t try stretching. Rather, nurture organic growth…
Advancements in technology are growing exponentially every year. The application of those innovations is used in most fields of human activities; education is no exception.
In the educational sector, video is already a wide-spread instrument. Its uses are limitless, but they often come with a higher price. The real question we have to answer is this: can video replace teachers in the near future?
Unless you’re a bestselling author with a built-in audience and reliable reputation, selling an agent or publisher a collection of your short stories is nearly impossible, even if the stories have been previously published in high profile magazines, print or digital.

Though there's a certain contingent of the population utterly devoted to going green, there's still plenty of resistance out there.

If you consider yourself a writer, you are in essence a communicator.
The key to being a successful communicator lies largely in consistency of message, tone and delivery style. Even when you’re not writing something for publication – a blog, article, story, book, etc. – it’s best to comport yourself as if you are whenever addressing any issue in any type of public forum.
This is how you build and maintain a solid reputation amongst the online literary community, and perhaps more importantly, your developing fan base.
If you’re deciding whether to write a book, one of the common considerations besides what kind of story you want to write is how long it needs to be.
But unless you’re tailoring it for the requirements of a particular editor or publisher, you no longer have to decide this in advance. In fact, you don’t need to know until you’ve actually written down everything you want to tell. Then when it’s over, you’ll know just how long your book is: exactly how long (or short) it needs to be.
And then you price and market it accordingly. It wasn’t always this simple, though.
