I read this recently on facebook. It is a gentle reminder that we all make mistakes. Of course, there are far worst decisions we could make than not recognizing what will be popular. There are also worst decisions than mere financial ones.

Yet as I writer I find it encouraging that publishers don’t always know the public mind. It gives me hope when my writing is rejected or ignored, there still might be a market for what I write, it might even be larger than I imagine.
