your work is worth something

A friend sent me the link to this video in which science fiction writer Harlan Ellison talks about not getting paid for his work. He's speaking of Hollywood, but it's the same in magazines: When amateurs (and newbies) so readily give up their writing for free, people stop wanting to pay, even for first-rate work from professionals.

this really gave me food for thought. I don't think I'll be doing to much free work in the future. I take myself seriously and others should too. :)
