According to Stephen King “If you intend to write as truthfully as you can, your days as a member of polite society are numbered.” ― Stephen King, On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft
Don't write to please everyone; if you do no one will like it. Write for yourself, and some people will like it and some won’t. ~ Who said this first? I couldn’t find the source.
