Matt Alexander posted an excellent interview with Brent Simmons. In it they talk about “tools for the modern writer, pursuing passions, the value of the written word, and the state of the publishing industry.”

Words and stories are my passion, and I’m lucky to live in this era when words and stories are ridiculously abundant and where worldwide distribution is nearly free. People who love to read and write have never had it this good.

As usual, Brent has some very intelligent and insightful things to share. If you enjoyed Craig Mod’s article from yesterday, this interview with Brent complements it nicely.
