At the end of the day it’s about story.
It doesn’t matter if it’s on the printed page, in an e-book, on an iPad or even on the back of a cereal packet – it’s a writer’s job to be read. And the corollary is that it’s a reader’s job to read.
Debates about page versus screen, shallow versus deep, these are distractions. So are the future versus the past, adapting versus stagnating.
Story is how we make sense of the world. We’re hardwired that way.
