Saw "Django Unchained" a few days ago, and although I am a huge Tarantino fan, I left wondering if what I saw was entertainment. It had the basic good guy/bad guy formula, but it also had a lot of blood and adult language. If I had left the theater and used some of the language or violence on a patron as I was heading to my car, I would have been beaten up or put in jail. Yet we all sat there and watched person after person get blowing apart, beaten, and called various names and ethnic slurs and nobody batted and eye. I know different people have different tastes, but when writing for a general audience, how do you know what is entertaining and what is not? When I post a book online, I want to see 5 stars rated next to it, but although I may think what I have written is great, the next guy may hate it. How can any book be honestly rated? You will never please everyone, and I think if you try to please everyone, your book will suffer. When I see a dislike by my book, it drives me mad and I take it very seriously. I know I shouldn't let it bother me, but I write for myself and not for anyone else. I post my work because I feel all artwork should be seen, otherwise it is pointless. When someone writes a best seller, what are they really writing?
