Which means we have all gone a little more green at home too.
The point of this email is not the "go green" aspect (thought conservation is never a bad thing), but rather the fact that all of these developments have led to, what I consider to be, an even bigger shift in writing.

Granted, this has opened doors for many others, career men and women, working parents, teenagers and countless others. The prevalence of the stay-at-home mom demographic has just struck me recently (perhaps because I am one), and I have a feeling this demographic has grown astonishingly in the last five years. I don't have any data to back it up, but it sure seems like that is the case.
How have the changes in technology and the publishing world affected your career choice to become a writer?
