There's an old saying that makes the rounds from time to time. It goes like this: "Writing is like prostitution: First you do it for fun, then you do it for a few friends, and then you do it for money."
That's pretty much true--and both writing and prostitution can be creative.
But there is one way in which writing is definitely not like prostitution: Prostitutes don't do it for free!
