I Write Books to Conquer This World

So as a general rule, I’ve always considered that quality is worth more than quantity in the writing world. If you have a hundred books out but all of them tell the exact same story and are garbage, then I don’t care that you might have fifty best-sellers. But take authors like Harper Lee, who only have one book in the world (because no matter what anyone tries to say, WATCHMAN is just a first draft of MOCKINGBIRD) and that book is amazing. However, I’ve found more and more that I seem to be in the minority on that opinion. There are plenty of people out there who say that they key to being successful is to simply put out more and more and more work, as much as you possibly can, and stop worrying about being good.
