I saw a question posted the other day in the Writer’s Discussion Group on Google+.
“Would you rather write the next hot bestseller or a classic that will be studied in classrooms for years to come?”
I found this question so intriguing because my reaction to it was so fast and strong. I thought, “Of course I want to write a classic. Who doesn’t?” And then I read the comments. Turns out, some writers want to write classics, and some want to write the next hot bestseller.
