Does Chuck dislike us?
I was reading his interview in the writer's digest and I came upon this.
Yet you have an incredibly large fan base that even has its own name and website-The Cult. Did they make you feel like a success?
Chuck: I try to forget about the expectation that's out there and the audience listening for the next thing so that i'm not trying to please them. [B]I've spent a huge amount of time not communicating with these folks and denying that they exist.[/B] You realize you have no control over how you are perceived. I want to focus my energy on the thing I can control--which is the next book.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this interview, but I don't know if I am misreading it, or if what he is saying is perfectly normal.
What sprang this up was when I was reading this and when I thought about when I met him in person and I mentioned I was a part of The Cult and he had an odd expression and said that that was not his actual site, it is just a fan site. I didn't expect him to be blown away. Does he think we are some kind of people that worship him and sacrifice animals and drink their blood whilst lighting candles around Chuck-shrines? It seems like he said he denies that we exist.
If I am misinterpreting this, please say something.
I also recommend you buy the October Edition of "Writer's Digest," that Dennis made a thread about (Thanks). They will be taking off the shelves on October the 16.
