Money Vs Longevity - A brief follow up

I posted a link to my earlier blog post (this one) on Facebook and there was a comment stating that surely people also wrote because of a love of the character etc.


So I shall clear up a misunderstanding here. I was not suggesting that people write Sherlockian books purely for the money or the fame/longevity. I certainly didn't. The point I was trying to make was that, regardless of your motivation for writing, as a fiction writer you are likely to make more money than the non-fiction writer but your time in the spotlight will be shorter because of the volume of output. On the flip side, the non-fiction writer will make less money but will be known for longer due to the smaller amount of competition.

I hope this is now clear.
