Is having an entrepeneurial bend good for or detrimental to your writing?
it depends on how much entrepreneurial work you are letting get into your writing.. but hey, it works for me. i've been an entrepreneur for a couple of years. hasn't effected my normal writing. works great in websites i create tho
One can answer that by evaluating why they write. For me, I write because I have the itch, an inward desire to express myself and share some of my emotion and fantasy with others. While I enjoy some adoration and positive feedback, the reality within me says that it is highly unlikely that it will ever benefit me greatly in a commerical sense. That said, I will continue to write unless for some unforseen reason I just lose the muse. Looking at a different perspective, one might say that the "writing" is the product that you can produce and the instinct of the entreprenuar begs, "how can I sell it?" Thus, there is a lot more activity and effort associated with getting the 'product' in front of as many people as possible in order to make the sale. But, in this example, I think you have to view the writing as simpy a 'product' which then (to me) makes it secondary to the desire to just make money. In the end, we have to look at commerically successful writers and wonder which road they came up to really know. WB
