I was talking with my creative writing professor today, and she told me of something that scared the shit out of me. It seems any work that you have on the internet and is viewable by the public won't even be considered for publication by publishers. She knows because she has gone thorugh the same situation it seems. All publishers it seem go by the philosophy that if you already have somethign published in one form, why should they pay the money to publish it again, and why should readers pay money to read what is available for free.
So, I just wonder what you guys think of this, and how it shall influence all your original works. Fanfiction doesn't really fall in the above category I suppose.
