Writing about my writing insecurities is really easy. The tough part is narrowing it down to one topic.
When I'm writing my insecurities come when I think about sharing my writing with others. It is something I have put hours into creating, something I feel is pretty good. But What will other people think about it?
So at this point in my writing career, First book (The Exile) came out in October, I haven't had a lot of reviews for my book. One thing I really dread is the day when someone reads my book and really hates it. I know that day will come, we can't all like everything we read, and different books appeal to different people, but each day when I see a notification that a new review is posted I take a deep breath and hope that it won't be too ugly.
I'm not really sure where else to go with this. I guess I'll just ask the question and let the comments make up the rest of this post.
Have you gotten scathing reviews? What did you do?
