If often goes that the pieces you put the most effort into, spent the most time writing and generally are the ones you put the most heart into are the least popular.
Turns out sometimes your reader won’t be as enamored with the work that you consider to be your best, in fact they may hate it.
And so you may now find yourself with the dilemma of whether you should continue sharing what you consider to be your best work when your readers don’t seem to like it.
For me the answer is yes, your work should be about so much more than simply pleasing the reader.
Just because something isn’t popular, doesn’t mean that it isn’t any good or that it isn’t appreciated.
One thought on “When your readers hate your best ideas”
I only control what I can, and leave external influences to do what they may. You hit the nail on the head by saying that you should keep sharing your work, because that’s what you can control. Your readers’ reactions? That’s a whole different ballgame. Thanks for this post!
