Don’t write for the masses — write for yourself. You have talent, you have determination. Do what makes you comfortable and happy and forget the rest.
I personally think this is a good chunk of why so much Teen-Fic and easy reading stories are getting published faster than ever — readers don’t have to put in so much time and effort into it. Sadly, the publishing industry is mirroring Hollywood now and afraid to publish stories that are controversial or have a uniquely styled prose or story to tell. Of course they will if you are an established author, but how is one to become one if the opportunity isn’t there? Smh. It’s a difficult time, but a good one to pick up indie, self or locally published books.
