For example, one UK program, NewNovelist, states, "Let's be frank - time is money. You need to get your book out, like, yesterday." When did writing novels become all about the money they can generate? When did the process lose its appeal and the writer lose her place in the formation of the book? Writing is supposed to be hard--otherwise, everyone would be doing it. If you write your book without working a little bit, how can you take any pleasure in the finished product that will probably not be published, anyway?
I'm a little bit disgusted. Actually, I'm a lot disgusted.
