I've been through the whole gamut of emotions about people's reactions to my writing over the past 3 yrs and feel I have settled in a better place now. I realise how to handle it better. I did get some really nasty criticism which was very personal when I joined a forum that rated each others' writing. I decided it wasn't for me as the members seemed vindictive and hugely competitive and so I decided to try Blogging. I have had much better feedback and support, which has helped my writing mature enormously, so thank you everyone.
So how about you?
BTW Don't forget thePlotting Blogfest. Have you signed up? It's great for your P word.
I'm actually still on a blog break at the moment. I'm trying to get some non-writing things done that have been haunting me for literally years. I've filled so many rubbish bags I've been worried I'd get charged by the council LOL! Happy A-Zing.
