Thank you for this post and for articulating the disgust/disbelief I felt when I read that AW thread.

Also, it helped me realize that I tend to whine more than I might like to admit, albeit mostly to myself. This Newbie's going to go write now. Happy New Year.

Aww come on. Don't ya know, it's easier to whine than it is to work? And it's so much easier to point the finger at someone else for our failings than it is to look inside for the cause.

If only all writers were mature enough to see the logic. I am tired of the whining.

If you shop around and find a market unwilling to publish your work due to your gender, move on.
Whining is so unappealing to adults.

Usually those days of whines and roses come from newbies, I've noticed. I tell them "Real Writers Don't Whine". We're busy doing writerly and editorial deeds like trying to help newbies on forums and message boards. The ones that really stick in my craw, though, are the newbies who expect success to fall in their laps without putting in the time, energy, and expenses to learn the craft/art.

Hadn't even read that AW thread before tonight. Can't even go where it took me. Glad I wasn't a part of it.

What I don't understand is ... why would a writer want to write for an audience that didn't want to read work that was written from their point of view?

If some readers don't want to read what I write from my heart or my own personal experience, that's fine, I'll find other readers that do. I'm not going to get mad at the former group of readers (or the publishers that supplies them.)

I think it boils down to what motivates a writer. Does the writer have something pertinent to say to an interested audience or do they simply want the money one market can provide?
