To make this brief, I’m dabbling with the idea of creating a creative writing gig. Think short stories, etc. However, I can’t reconcile myself with how it could ever be worth it.
I can’t turn my creativity on and off. If it takes me a few hours without distraction to write a basic web page. It is, therefore, going to take me a week without distraction to write a short story worth reading. - Unless of course, I just borrow the inspiration or everything from elsewhere…
In either case, no one is going to pay megabucks for a standalone short story, are they?
So, how much would you charge and what would you offer with that?
