In an earlier post today I wrote about How To Know Which Story To Write.
This prompted a reader to ask:
“But what if the movie you really want to see only appeals to you and a few other people? Would writing that movie really be a worthwhile way to spend your time?”
That’s an excellent question.
The first thing you should do is ask yourself why you are writing the story you’re working on. If it’s just to please yourself or entertain your friends, then business prospects should never really be an issue. As I said in an earlier post called The First Fan you are your best, first audience you and your work has.
But if, however, you plan to approach an agent or producer with your story it would be wise to, at the very least, keep an eye and ear on the market you are writing for.
Good luck and happy writing.
