On False Dichotomy vs Who Cares

Yes! This. This is such a silly self-involved conversation that the writers seem to behaving with themselves. And I'm this market. I'm a Millenial writer, who wants a book. (Join the club, folks!) But really, it's a false dichotomy, truly. I feel like it's all hand wringing and lamenting. Spare me. Give me a good story. Also, I think it carefully weeds out all the good writing that happens in the middle. But I do love the Emily Gould essay.
