Five panelists at the AWP conference in Seattle (February 26-March 1, 2014) posed this question and tried to answer it.
“How many readers will it take to feel I haven’t wasted my time?” asked moderator Valerie Vogrin, who’s at work on her second novel.

One of the guys had a brother in law who lived in Hollywood and knew a lot of people who had access to film, cameras, projectors, and sound implements. This was at a time before digital cameras, so all of this equipment was rare to the average person.
One day the brother in law decided we who lived in this…

Grand openings, opening day at the ball park, opening presents Christmas morning, opening the door of your first home and opening that acceptance letter: What could be more exciting than opening something new?
