Oh dear! THE STATS! THE EVIL AWFUL STATS!

Yeah, well, screw the STATS. The stats is just numbers. I love numbers, true, but the stats will only make you sad, or unloved, or confused as to what these moron readers are thinking when they give you 3 hearts and 146 views.

Write for you. Write OF you. Trust me, three hearts is totally great if the comments include an “Awwww!” from Tremaine L. Loadholt or a sloppy “X” from Jules, or some other note from people you have come to respect.
