Neil Gaiman on writing for money

An excerpt from a commencement address by Neil Gaiman:

I decided that I’d do my best in future not to write books
just for the money. If you didn’t get the money, then you didn’t have anything.
And if I did work I was proud of, and I didn’t get the money, at least I’d have
the work. –Neil Gaiman
