Quote of the Week: "People put the books where they want"

Another Neil Gaiman quote this week. Am I in a rut or is he just that awesome? (Hint: I'm not in a rut.)
I don't worry about it. I don't think about it. It's not something I feel I need to bother with. People put the books where they want to put them, but the books don't change … From where I stand, worrying about how something you are writing is going to be received critically while you're writing it is a whole lot of wasted worrying: there's nothing you can do about it anyway. Why not worry about making what you're writing the best thing that it can be, which is something you can do something about?
--Neil Gaiman, on deciding what genre you're writing
