So true!This little gem came at me via Facebook and although it wasn't on my author page is so relevant to all those who wish to create with metaphorical paper and pen.
I often read blogs where the author has become totally obsessed with marketing and list strategies for success. It worries me that they are bastardising their art. We write because we can, if money is made as a result we are lucky but if we try to adopt commercialised styles of writing then we are not being true to ourselves.
Don't get me wrong I would love to be a financially successful writer and I have plans for the money, but it is unlikely, not because I don't write good books, I believe that I do, but the genre may be against me. That is, not to say I will not experiment in different areas, but in the meantime I am honing my skills within the boundaries of the familiar.
