If someone deliberately sets out to write a best seller, what he is really saying is that he is going to write a book that will appeal to everyone. In essence, what he is looking for is the lowest common denominator. I believe when you try to appeal to everyone, the result is that you end up appealing to almost no one. Every good writer that I know writes to please himself, not to please others.
