Do you just write anything that comes to your mind? Do you have specific topics that you see as ''good topics'' and write about them exclusively? Do you write what sells the best? Or maybe you learn from classics and try to write about and as they have written? There's another question that has been on my mind lately. How do you pick what is worth to be written about? What criteria do you use? What are you trying to put in your stories (and other things that you write)? What do you think is the key to writing pieces that get published in the best of literary magazines?
