The Writing Life: Two (Economic) Views

These two articles about the fortunes of two fine writers -Charles D'Ambrosio and Charles Frazier - should be required reading for all MFA writing students; their professors should Xerox them and pass them out immediately. That way, all of those Alice Munro wannabes who actually think they will somehow scratch out a living as a short story writer will jolt themselves out of their Tin House daydreams and hunker down to write that epic period novel that everyone either seems to have read or at least have placed on their nightstand for a little later.

Hey man, right on! You've got a very good and just point about the writing biz these days. The main economic payoff of short stories is an academic post, and if you don't want that, better to tend bar and crank on the novel. Anyway, I was forwarded your post and thought it was funny and keen, so I'm just saying so . . .
