A big thing around the publishing world lately is whether or not to write for the market. The general consensus is no, since by the time your novel gets published the trends will have changed. But a lot of agents are giving suggestions and theories about what will be popular over the next few years, and people are writing toward those possible trends. What do you guys think? Write for trends or possible trends, or write your own things and hope that you fit the market when it comes time to seek representation?

I tend to write about whatever interests me. Still, novels like Nick & Norah's Infinite Playlist are extremely popular because they are geared towards their audience, even though there are some popular references in it. If I do use references, I use ones that are very popular and won't seem to die out so soon. For example, one of Meg Cabot's novels features a main character that is obsessed with Gwen Stefani. Almost everyone knows who she is, so that's okay.

I don't tend to reference popular culture, but I do reference things past that have remained in the lexicon. I also reference historical events often. In fact, tSotD was based on the French Revolution.

I dislike trying to write for the market, as it changes quickly and unpredictably. There is always a market for well-written fiction, and it will get published even if it's not currently "in."

you should never write for whats in now anyway. After all, publishers want whats going to be in. Publication takes forever even after a contact so you can't expect the industry to stay the same over that time. You just have to make your writing the best you can.
