Sometimes I write things that I think are awesome that just don’t do that well and sometimes I write things that I think are just pretty good that do great. It boggles my mind, and I actually wrote about That too. “I have no idea what you want.” But ultimately, I’m not trying to earn my living as a writer and so any accolades or $ is really gravy. I love positive feedback, claps and comments, but also primarily write for myself — my own inner processing and self expression so if it doesn’t land with someone else, OK, no problem. On to the next piece.

That being said, I appreciate how you’ve talked about this topic so thoroughly.
