Never for Money, Always for Love?

Professional writer John Scalzi is in it for the money, and his post explaining why that’s cool and valid is really good: “Every once in a while someone in the comments here says, usually as an aside to something else, that no one becomes a writer to get rich. So as a point of clarification, and to give everyone else who is slightly exasperated by this sort of comment something to point at: Hey, I became a writer to get rich. I’ve always been in the writing business not just to write, and not just to make money, but also to make a lot of money—basically, to get rich at it.” (thx Meaghan!)
