I want to know what you consider more important for your careers...be it writing, painting, software programming. Commercial success or doing something you love.
I know that there are a lot of authors who manage to find that sweet spot where commercial success means writing what they love, but I think that often, authors choose one or the other. They write something because they know it has commercial appeal despite the fact that they don't love it, or they write books they know won't reach a wide audience because it's what they love.
And I want to know what is more important to you all.
So fire away! Tell me what you think. Would you write something you weren't in love with if you knew it would sell well? Could you be happy writing stories you love if you knew they'd never find a wide audience? Where's the line?
