To be paid to poop

The logic of the capitalist system is perfect: Who is satisfied, pay and who help meet that need, charge.

Writers need to write and would suffer if they did. It would be unfair to charge for satisfied.

It would also be unfair to the reader does not pay for enjoy reading, but do not know who would have to pay because the author, as I said, is being benefited by the reader by the mere fact that this reads what one writes.

In fact, this issue is resolved fairly easily: each book sold, the author would deliver an amount so small that, with good will, be called ' honorary ', the book seller pockets the 30 % and rest he is the editor.

Yes, the writer, who has the honor of collecting the measly amount also has the honor of being on the cover of the book as the author of the work, but also must do everything in their power to increase the sales of each specimen, that is, talk to friends, disclose, accepting interviews can ask of different media, to corporate gifts, make a presentation to the public, who pay a drink to stay waiting for the other great honor: the signing of autographs on each copy.

In short, the writer can not stop writing and none of us can delay too long the satisfaction of physiological needs you well know, for its part, as all this happens in a capitalist market, there are costs, selling prices, utilities, money, deals, duties, taxes.

Put it more bluntly: the writer needs to poop, but to do so you have to give a lot of intervention mechanisms of the capitalist system that common sense would not imagine.

Note: Original in Spanish (without translation by Google): Para hacer caca hay que pagar.
