Have you ever written something that you expected people to really enjoy, but it fell flat? Also, have you ever written something you thought would be terrible, and people loved it? I have experienced both, even though I have a pretty good filter for what's good and bad. I realize that the essence of any art form will be mixed reviews. Literature is subjective, and therefore some people will like it and some people won't. I'm talking about an unexpected opinion someone gave that was especially strong, one way or the other.
