Discuss: Pure Art?
I'm not really blogging today, though I am working on a deadline, which is kind of too bad. It's a beautiful day out there, and I just got an email with a sneaky p.s.: This is due Tuesday at 10 a.m. Anyway, the above strange graffiti is food for thought for your holiday weekend. I've been amused by recent posts claiming that financial reward is a good rule of thumb for making decisions in one's literary career. It makes me chuckle. I have so long ago given up the idea of making money as a short story writer, though I guess not entirely as a novelist (give me a few more weeks: I'm waiting to find out if it's going to get published well or not). We'll see. Still, I think the only rule should be remaining true to the work. Anyway, I hope you are kicking back and drinking a beer (or a near beer, or a healthy glass of water).
