This Is Now My Life

Everybody who wants to write for a living needs to read Karen Maezen Miller's little article "They Don't Pay Us to Write Books." In particular:
They don’t pay us to write books... [I]n relative terms we write for free. What they pay us for is to sell books.
A writer who doesn't grasp that important aspect of this business will become bitter.

(I'm not bitter, by the way. I'm excited to be doing this book.)
