"But even if I'm completely misunderstood, so what? Being true to the meaning, cognizant of the endeavor, is what matters." -Ana Scott Graham
Sometimes lately I need reminding of that. My task is not to get rich writing, or to write for the greatest number of people. My task is to write the best stuff I can. I need to be cognizant of the endeavor.
Whether the reader understands, really doesn't understand (unable? unwilling?), or misunderstands is not under my control.
Yes, I've been obsessing over reviews and sales. Yes, I need to get back to work. These pesky little misunderstood stories don't write themselves.
