Your novel in open sources
When you write, you probably think that typing is something you should do in an isolated hut in the forest, and, if possible, smell of rot. No one should ever know what you have done until this demi-god, the agency, gets the most valuable of all items, the script, and anoint you with the crown of a publishers agreement with a publishers.
When you want to post something, you have to do it. Cause I' m gonna write the Great American Notice, get a deal with one of the two big publishers. Whilst you wait for your fedEx contract,let me go back a few years to the1980s.
but it was me and also Richard Stallman who began to free software from the so-called software publishers. But it also means that the software developer could oversee the entire creative lifecycle from development to deployment.
Indeed, he maintained this authority by giving the user liberties, which included the liberty to copy, modify and share changes. Copy, modify and share my own novel I have written in the darkness while I smelled salty Atlantic Cod? Freeware didn't really start until a bloke named Linus Torvalds came along and developed an entire OS named Linux.
It was free. It wasn't just free, it was damn good. It' not a novelette. It' a whole damn liberty meeting the pale king. Then why would someone want to write something and give it for free? It' not only free of charge, but also so that everyone can edit, alter, distribute and mention funnily named like Mageia or Ubuntu?
However, maybe, just maybe, he wanted folks to learnt from what he had done and built on it; also recognize and fix his mistakes (hey, it's free as in liberty, you can give it back) and rely on it to make the biggest American encyclopedia Profusely Illustrated (Director's Cut).
He also wanted to be beloved and do a good thing, even if it's not just your own. Several award-winning authors, the Corys, the Strosses, release their works under a copyright law. It' not exactly open source: you release it with a CC when you' re done and when it's already too late to ask staff to help you with the trial or even do it as colleagues.
All I mean is to rewrite an open sourced novel from the ground up (like I did with Hoborg and some other boys out there) and inviting and sharing from the beginning. Do not write in the darkness, but in full sunlight (and without the salty cod). Support them from the beginning with their instruments, their fixed points, their thoughts, their critique, their research, which can help them to support their sections and whole sections and their dissemination and publication as teamwork.
Conventional publication methods ensure that the products, even if they are not great, are at least free of typos. Best way to ensure that is to hire the reader and have them if they want and if they want, do it for you (you could finally do it yourself, but if you don't open your novel, you can't go around and publish signed works if it's released to have someone editing it).
And, given the real publisher landscape, it is not possible to become lucrative if you spend your time writing all your work. The best way is to write things in partnership (perhaps with GitHub), just as movies and sit-com script do (without the freedom) to let everyone act according to their abilities, one is good at dialogue, the other good at character, the other good at making line shoots or cliffhanging.
The changes in the industrial sector mean a shift in manufacturing techniques. It' s very similar to authoring software; the open code move and method has help the software fellowship to make big things; it will also help authors; it already helps me.
