Junie B. Jones: How Digital Reading Affects Writing

I didn’t get a chance to bring this up in class today because other people were so willing to fill the silent space in conversation and the conversation didn’t really lead to my response, but as a creative writing major I naturally thought about how the way I read online may affect the way I write. When I am writing a creative piece I tend to stick to shorter sentences, smaller scenes, and I usually struggle to make page count. I wonder if this is because I am used to reading for the gist of the story rather than for the details present in close reading. I think it would have been interesting if Hayles talked about this affect of digital reading in her article too.
