Good. Who wants to be paid for writing? I’ve always preferred theraputic value over money.

Now, I understand what you’re saying, Geroganna, but she shouldn’t be soliciting stories from writers. Writers should alway sbe paid for their work. No exceptions. If she sells the book, any writers involved should receive compensation. Of course, if she’s giving the book away, that’s anotehr story. If she wants articles for free, she should be soliciting stories from people who, like her, are not writers, and do not want to be writers.

It’s true enough that far too many new writers do not ask for compensation, and they’re killing killing this business for themselves, and for everyone else involved.
