I love these things because I believe they are common experiences for writers. And because I believe you first have to learn to write for “them,” you first have to write to sell, before you can learn to write for “me” and discover that’s the way to go.
It just seems to me that this is the process many writers go through. And I’m not sure we should try to cut it short.
