Am I the only one who gets super annoyed when I see articles like "How to Become a Bestselling Author" and "How to Appeal to Readers to Make Sales"?

I mean, is that what writing has stooped to? Is that why people write now? No wonder there are so many crappy books. It's fine if you want to make money, I get that, it's how the world works. I just kind of viewed literature as something more pure and... different, I suppose. At least when I was younger. I realize that business is a part of it if you want to make a living, but... I don't know it seems blasphemous, to use an extreme term.

I know there are still people who write out of passion, but it just gets on my nerves a bit when I see articles like that.

I talk to my parents about all my books. I've made it clear I write characters of many different sexualities. If they don't like it - my dad's fine, my mum can misunderstand things a bit (i.e., she once accidentally said she thought some people chose to be gay because one of her friends used to date women and now only dates men - meaning she's obviously chosen to be straight instead as, you know, being bisexual). I mean, aside from her lack of understanding about sexuality, she's usually great, and I do try to help her out.

Oooh, cross-orchestral romance... forbidden passion between the horn and string sections...
