I belong to a large organization
catering to romance writers.

Large organizations change slowly.
It is challenging
to gain consensus
with so many people,
from so many different backgrounds,
involved.

The romance writing industry
is changing VERY quickly.
Only a year ago,
no respectable writer
considered self-publishing.
Now, almost everyone is considering
that route.

Unfortunately, the writing organization
has very narrow specifications
on which formats and genres and even word counts
they deem as acceptable.

They can’t keep up with the changes.
Sub-groups are inventing workarounds
as the organization falls more and more
out of touch
with the current writing environment.
If they don’t catch up,
eventually they’ll become extinct.

If you’re building a business
in a quickly changing industry
(and ALL industries are changing quickly),
add flexibility
so your business can also change.

Great businesses adapt to change.
