Does Recovery Kill Great Writing?

quote [ The first time I told the story of my drinking, I sat among other drinkers who no longer drank. Ours was a familiar scene: circled folding chairs, foam cups of coffee gone lukewarm, phone numbers exchanged. Before the meeting, I imagined what might happen after it was done: People would compliment my story or the way I?d told it, and I?d demur, Well, I?m a writer, shrugging, trying not to make too big a deal out of it. I practiced with notecards beforehand. ]

I see some validity to this.

'National Geographic' Reckons With Its Past: 'For Decades, Our Coverage Was Racist'

quote [ Editor in Chief Susan Goldberg asked John Edwin Mason, a professor of African history and the history of photography at the University of Virginia, to dive into the magazine's nearly 130-year archive and report back.

What Mason found was a long tradition of racism in the magazine's coverage: in its text, its choice of subjects, and in its famed photography. ]

Ward - Sequel to the web-serial Worm

quote [ The unwritten rules that govern the fights and outright wars between ?capes? have been amended: everyone gets their second chance. The world ended two years ago, and as humanity straddles the old world and the new, there aren?t records, witnesses, or facilities to answer the villains? past actions in the present.
----
Ward is the second work in the Parahumans series, and reading Worm first is strongly recommended. A lot of this won?t make sense otherwise and if you do find yourself a fan of the universe, the spoilers in Ward will affect the reading of the other work.

Ward is not recommended for young or sensitive readers. ]

Currently up to Arc 5.

The original web-serial was posted here and is around 1.7 million words long, roughly 10 novels in length.
