I’m not sure I’m capable of writing to market. However, have a read, it’s interesting.
If we’ve ever researched how to be more successful as a writer, chances are we’ve heard the advice: Write to market. And if we’ve heard that advice, there’s a good chance we’ve had a strong reaction.
Some writers hear that advice and think, duh. Others hear the advice and feel a visceral protest.
What does the advice mean? Is there a way we can recognize the benefits of writing to market without running into the negatives?
