IWSG: Taking a Postive From a Negative
Yup, it's that time again! Hosted by the amazing Alex. J Cavanaugh, this bloghop is intended for writers to share our insecurities, and support others!
I don't have much in the way of new insecurities, so I am going to keep this one fairly short, and focus on the positive side of negative reviews. I laugh as I write this because I didn't think I would ever have anything positive to say about bad reviews! :P
The thing is, when Game On was released, I was terrified that everyone would hate it. Whenever I checked the reviews, I was nervous, just waiting for one to come up that told me what a terrible writer I am! Thankfully, most of the reviews have been positive, and the ones that haven't ... well ... that's okay. Not everyone likes the same things, not everyone will connect with the characters, and ultimately, I'm happy with my book. So ... if you find yourself with negative reviews - learn from them. Use anything that is constructive, and let the rest wash over you.
