If your sole intent is to come up with a book that will appeal to a tested market demographic and meets all of the hallmarks for the publication trend of the moment, you’re not a writer. You’re an assembly line.
But if you aim to tell a story that pleases you and one you believe that people might want to read–and you put your sweat and heart into it, then you are a writer.
Seldom is a writer rich–except in spirit.
Reminder: Turn off your TV. It’s very bad for you..
