I don't really know. I'm agreeing with some people here...because I see fabulously written fanfictions sometimes and I wonder if they are real writers getting published because they should really pursue it if they're that good.
But then again, I think some writers are being snooty because of the money. Having said that, I don't believe fanfiction should be published and sold for profits. But writers saying it's an invasion of their world or whatever... it's a bit meh---
If I had a "world" that people loved enough to invent, reinvent, or add to, I'd be flattered. I wouldn't be offended because I would know in my heart that my "world" is something that only I can take control of.
I don't know.
I feel disappointed, but empathetic to these writers as well.
Why is the world all about money?
