Fiction is cheap art to produce.
It makes sense of you think about it.
I mean, all that is required is food to eat and a place to sleep.
Heck, with supportive parents you could make a go of creating a novel over a summer.
500 words a day for 90 days is 45,000 words – and it all starts with a simple routine.
I don’t know. My blogging is pretty cheap too though.
Especially with a good job!
All I need is a computer and the ability to cover my hosting costs.
All art can be done on a shoestring if you want it.
For another thing, there’s the money. Fiction is an extremely cheap art when you compare it with movie production. All fiction requires is a pencil, some paper, and a good imagination. Novels can be written on a few months’ rent money and some groceries. But getting money, and usually a lot of it, is the first essential in moviemaking. No dough, no show. And, if it’s a Western we’re talking about, $50 or $60 million might now be required; some, but not much of this, will be used to pay for a workable script.
