‘Constant reinvention is the new reality’

The Poynter Institute Journalism site is one I check periodically for ideas related to the journalism class I teach. Today I was reading the transcript of a live chat about transitioning newspaper skills to other jobs (in or out of actual journalism). The following comment really struck me, because I think it’s good advice to anyone in the rapidly changing writing field.

Joe Grimm, Poynter:

Constant reinvention is the new reality. It would be nice to believe that have to go through a big transition just once, but that is not being realistic. If Plan B becomes your new Plan A, you had better start working on the new Plan B.
