Today is the first Wednesday of the month. If you don't know what that means, and you are a writer, go here right now! Big thank you to Alex, Sheena-kay, Suzanne, and Laura for hosting the Insecure Writer's Support Group this month!
As most of you know, my novella, Secondary Characters, came out recently. So I have been preparing myself for the bad reviews which I know are coming. Every book gets them. And when we get them we remind ourselves, every book gets them.
But to help take the sting out even more I've been looking up bad reviews of books I loved. (Does this make me crazy? I hope not.) And I have seen some really horrible, hateful reviews for books that are really and truly amazing. So you really can't please everyone.
So next time you are feeling bad about a negative review I recommend looking up one of your all time favorites on GR and seeing what kind of horrid abusive it's gotten. Because trust me, someone out there hates it.
