Do people write what they really think or do they write what is most likely to be "liked?"
I'd like to hear people's opinions... About Which is most important? Writing things that will likely result in being "liked" by people so people keep reading your posts and you become popular and you keep your job and maybe become very successful or putting your more real, down-to-earth, and honest but controversial and/or counterculture viewpoint out into the universe even if it's not appreciated in your lifetime and might ultimately cause you to lose your job and any following?
I write from my heart, some people will like it and some people will hate it. But if you are not true to yourself then writing becomes a job not a passion for readers. My first book, Through the Eyes of a Mother was down to earth and honest, raw emotion. This book hit top seller on the first day, because of this I continue to publish my writings.
