Would you say that more people are being drawn into writing as a career due to the exposure and lucrative deals they stand to score if their books are made into movies?
I would think that might be the case for some people. I write to share my stories and, hopefully, to entertain my readers. The extremely slim chance of one of my works being adapted into a film doesn't influence what I write about or how I write it. I'm sure I have more of a chance of being struck by lightning than scoring a film deal but I imagine the possibility, no matter how remote, might entice some people to try their hand at writing.
