Success and Envy

I read an article tonight about the EL James phenomena and her 50 Shades series on The Guardian

Is one person’s success opposed by another person’s envy? Is EL James the anti-JK Rowling?

What makes a good story and does it matter if someone takes the characters from one context, puts them in another and abuses them, and what is this about?

I wish I hadn’t asked myself that….I could ask more questions about why some people create what they do, but…and ask that of myself too.

Should writers self-evaluate, or just write?
