It's interesting to me this concept of "fighting for my story" no matter what it takes. I look at writing fiction from a larger perspective. A career is my goal here, so each individual story is just a step on the staircase. Lasting attachments to books just doesn't happen for me, although I do like some stories I write better than others. I'd like to have many books published with an audience that will sustain a relationship with me as an author. Each book helps me get that much closer to my overall goal. Not to say any other way is less or isn't. It just always fascinates me how other writers work.
