Writing as a vocation, not artsy-fartsy pretentiousness
I've been getting very annoyed by the efforts of many self-described 'experts' to bemoan the growing number of self-published books, and the lack of intellectual rigor they see in them. Frankly, I think it's BS from start to finish. It's yet another example of social justice warriors taking over a field and demanding that it conform to their expectations, rather than to reality.
This morning, I approach that topic in my monthly column for Mad Genius Club. If you're interested in the subject, click over there and see what I have to say, then join the discussion. I suspect it'll get interesting!
