Paint it black….

I was talking to a newbie writer last night. She said she would do whatever she had to in order to get published. Okay – fair enough – your choice. Then she added no matter what the publisher said or did she would go along with it. Um no, not fair enough. How far do you compromise to get ahead? What if you don’t agree with something that may not be agreeable to you? Is the threat of blacklisting worth your own soul? Your own principles? Your own beliefs? My opinion? Nope. If I have to change who I am then put me on the black list as incorrigible as I will not accept being anyone but me. I’m not an author clone.
