The following quote is from a recent post on SFSignal.com:
“In college, I had a renowned creative writing professor try to convince me to stop writing “genre” fiction and put my talents to better use. My answer to him was to ask why I would give up writing something I loved for something I had no interest in?”
Now this makes so much sense to me. I have read a great deal and for relaxation, much prefer genre fiction.
I’ve been dissed by the ‘real literature’ snobs on more than one occasion.
What do you think?
