He's a polite writer. What a horrible thing to say. I hope no one thinks of me that way. I'm a polite person. But when it comes to writing, calling me polite would be a serious slap in the face.
A polite writer:
Writes with nearly everyone in mind.
Is afraid of the social implications of their stories.
Is afraid of hurting someone's feelings.
Is afraid of pissing someone off.
Changes the story to please.
Changes the story to placate.
Changes the story to sell.
Doesn't write with their own style.
Doesn't listen to their muse.
Doesn't enjoy the craft.
I would rather be known as an unsuccessful writer than sell polite novels.
Of course selling some impolite novels would be cool.
Come here Chapter 2. You are my bitch today.
