Question of the day

Would you rather write a novel that sells moderately well but is remembered for centuries to come -OR- a novel that sells tremendously but is ridiculed?

    I would just like to finish one. But I would like to be remembered for a great novel versus the short term love.

    I’d like to be noble but I’d love to have a trashy romance novel go to #1. That would be awesome.

    I would say to be remembered for centuries

    Remembered for centuries

    I think I will choose for the the one that will remember for centuries. That means, it still will sell and will give my children something to remember me even more. 🙂

    How about this. My first novel, number 1 with a bullet, setting me and my family up for life, even with the ridicule. And then I follow it up with a meaningful novel which proves that the first was just a beginner getting her legs, and now I’m remembered as a great novelist. Does that work?

    Remembered for centuries. I don’t want to add to all the nonsense spewed out there. There’s enough of that already!

    I don’t know, I’m going through a phase in my life where I really don’t feel like what I do will be significant after I’m gone. I mean, who cares? Especially in a world where people care more about immediate gratification and hurting others. Any chance that any of my ideas would catch on in this millenium?

    Then again, I am not big on being criticized in this life, either. Maybe I would use a pseudonym. But hopefully the book would be criticized for its simplicity or out-of-mainstream approach, and not for being actually trashy or unhealthy. In that case, maybe I wouldn’t mind it.

    If I wrote something it would be to impact as many people as possible. Give me longevity.
