People are going to get your story wrong

No matter how intelligent a person is, they might get your story wrong.

You may have put all the clues and all the information on the page, and they still may misunderstand what it is about.

There's nothing you can do.

If you take the time, artistry, and craftsmanship to tell your story as clearly as possible, you must be willing to send it into the world and be interpreted however it is.

After that, you have to accept that people might get it wrong.
