Writing, publishing, and marketing are like baking, frosting, and serving a cake.
Sometimes you neglect to add an ingredient, or the correct proportions of it, and you have to start all over. Sometimes despite every attention to detail, somebody sets the oven to the wrong temperature and the cake never gets done. Frosting can be tricky too. Some prefer it thick and sweet, others like only icing. The trick to baking the best cake is to learn from your mistakes. Practice and persistence yield results. If you want to make the perfect two-layer chocolate cake, work at it until you master the process.
Even then, just as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, taste is subjective.
So it is with writing.
You guyz are pretty damn clever.
