    This article I ran across struck me as interesting when it came to the subject of artists I'm all forms and what they deserve as payment for their creative work. We all put a lot into our craft. We care about pleasing our viewers and readers. So, what do all you creative people think about what Wil Wheaton has put forth in this article?

    I think Will Wheaton is right. We, creators, tell ourselves-- " Oh, we are just getting our name out there"  but the truth is if you are not being compensated you are laboring for free. We are casting our pearls before swine- that's one of my favorite scriptures. But what can we do? Creative people live and breathe for their art.

      You are also right Dana. If we don't write, we don't function.
