The sound of crickets

is an acquired taste.

You wrote and deleted and rewrote and revised and got feedback and would not sleep before it’s done.

And then?

Crickets.

The good news is that crickets aren’t a tough crowd. They’ll always fill the seats if nobody else shows up. They’re easy to impress. And they’re bad at throwing rotten tomatoes.

The charlatans won’t sleep until they hear the sound of praise.

The most successful creatives work the crowd of crickets.
