Oh wow, this is a good post by J. Steven York about writer’s delusions. I love this part:
Rule ala Seven – The Easy Genre
Rule ala Seven: There is no easy genre.
Romance is not easy. Science fiction is not easy. Fantasy is not easy. Writing children’s books is not only not easy, it is very, very hard. People looking for an “easy” genre don’t want to write, they want to have written. They are pretenders. If you are the real deal, don’t worry about what is easy, or what is hot. Write the stories you want to write, and the stories you want to tell. Practice. Develop your skills. You can worry about marketing later.
