Writers want to believe that if you write it, they will read.

The path between a writer’s mind and the reader is long, steep, and treacherous. Many good ideas have taken a wrong step, fallen down the mountain, and never walked again. Some ideas that have taken the shape of well-crafted words have reached a rock slide across the trail and found no way to get to the other side. And even published words don’t reach the summit until they get attention and accolades from readers. As difficult as it may be to get a book published, that part is easier than getting a book read.

I don’t know if there is any noise when a tree falls in the woods and nobody is there to hear it.
