The internet’s been a phenomenal tool for a lot of things, some good, some bad. One of the things it’s been good for is distribution of original writing. 30 years ago, if you’d written something, the only distribution option if you wanted to bypass traditional publishers was to pay (a lot) to print it yourself, and sell it out of the back of your car, pretty much.
But now? Write whatever you want, any idea, any genre, any length, and smack it on a WordPress page, and millions of people can see it at a click. Granted, actually getting millions of people interested in your writing is another job entirely, but the possibility is always there.
