Many people look at what is being sold right now and write by that standard. However, even if your book were sold today, it would be published 1 to 2 years down the line when everything may have changed.
I tend to write what I want, and hang the market. I write because I can’t stop. I don’t want to stop. If I have to write for myself, so be it.
On the other hand, I need to make a living…
So part 2 of the survey I started last month.
Writing for the Market:
1 Are you willing to write what the “market” wants?
2 How do you decide what the market wants?
3 Do you question whether publishers want your work because of what is selling right now?
4 Have you ever been tempted to start writing only for yourself because what you write “will never sell”?
