And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about. Haruki MurakamiKafka on the Shore  (via psych-facts)

When it comes down to it, I’m concerned that influential authors seem to believe that authorial intent trumps the reader experience and by equating disappointed readers with extreme behavior, they’re attempting to shut down dialog about their work.
I’d expect that out of literary fiction because those dudes’ trademark is arrogance, but out of genre fiction and YA? Nope. I expected better. Clearly, I was wrong.

Reader Expectations & Authorial Intent: What Matters? — Clear Eyes, Full Shelves

Very well said.  As an avid reader of MG/YA, I constantly feel forced to defend my reading preferences, and it’s always disheartening to see YA writers look down on their readership too.

(via paperbackd)

As my lit professor said, if an author has to explain their intent, that’s a failing if the text, not the audience. No one can pick up on every microscopic nuance.
