The strangest thing about being an author.

Standard

The strangest thing about being an author.

I have spent thousands of hours reading other peoples work.

funny-writing-meme-twilight-writer-jokeBut until I started putting full stories together and down on paper(or computer)

I never knew that with each book an author is taking their mind child and saying 

look at this piece of me.

How many people would sit back and let someone insult their child.

That’s why a bad review hurts.

But that’s what we are told is the best response.

And I have had a few bad ones

no not you” you say.

OK that’s what I imagine you would say.

At one time I received a review that made disparaging remarks about my ancestral gene pool.

And rather then answer back I put a line on my good reads page from one of my favorite movies.

ftI don’t want to talk to you no more, you empty headed animal food trough wiper.

I fart in your general direction.Your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.”

a great line from a funny movie.

now I am not saying that you can’t have an opinion but don’t attack a poor author

who just put his work out for your amusement.

Now because I finally have this blog up and running I will be bringing some of my earlier posts from my goodread blog

Dealing with a bad review

how come I can get 5 good reviews but one bad one and I second guessing everything … I know stupid there will be people who wouldn’t like my stories but really. i going to read some of the good reviews and then keep doing the same thing as before.

i feel like i am doing a Stuart Smalley

stuart“I’m good enough. I’m smart enough. And doggone it, people like me.”

An excellent plot! I also found it very realistic. I wish some parts were not as fast, but still very well written!
