Dear Miss Snark;
I've been thinking about the question you answered the other day concerning FT vs PT authors and income, and I'm curious.
Have you ever had a client who DIDNT want fame and fortune through their writings? I'm sure there are those who write independent of their incomes, but does any writer actually go out of their way to avoid having their name attached to statements etc? Perhaps a living writer, who donated work prehumously so to speak, just to see it in print.
Probably a nitwit qualifier question, huh. Just wondering, since in my best fantasies of eventual publishment my daydreams become nightmares of taxes, insurance, and the evil IRS boojums. (I'm really not an outlaw Miss Snark, but like to stay very low profiled hehe) Yours in Snarkiness,

Four words: James Frey, (he wishes)
Five words: Don't fear the unknown future.
And just a few more: Just write. Write well. That's all. Don't spend a single moment worrying about what anyone else will say or do, or what the future will hold. Just write. If you love to write, write. The rest will fall into place. I promise.
