The Literary Life

My mother is convinced that my blogging here at the Butcher's Shop is a warm up for an eventual foray into the world of book authorship. At this point, I don't see it. If I have a book in me, it's locked away deep in the vault somewhere.

At any rate, Terry Teachout has some excellent advice for novice authors today. His Prime Directive:

Anyone who writes a serious book with the expectation of making a lot of money and/or becoming famous is a fool. If you can’t afford to write a book in your spare time for its own sake, you’re in the wrong business.
