Literary Snapshots of the Writing Life
Interesting quote. I rarely share my poetry with people who know me - I do it under this pseudonym, and have rarely accepted money for it. So, I perhaps I am the proverbial hooker with a heart of gold. Or an idiot. - Mosk
The quote made me think of my intentions, and like you, I may have dabbled a bit with sharing my poetry with friends/family's or wanting to turn a profit, but overall, I love to write. Does that mean if I start looking for publishing opportunities I'm pimping myself out, that I'm losing the love? Meh, I don't think so. Maybe we're both poetic idiots.
