Check out this post from the Novelty Revisions blog on how not all people who criticize you are wrong.
No writer is perfect.
Not as they write their first draft, or at any point thereafter.
You know this. Because chances are, if you’ve published anything on the internet, someone, somewhere, has taken time out of their day to point out at least one thing you didn’t do correctly, or to their liking.
Typically, criticisms vary by degrees of usefulness. Some comments are, let’s be honest, absolute trash, and aren’t worth your energy or time.
But sometimes, criticism holds at least a little bit of truth, even if it doesn’t look like it at first.
Often, we dismiss most of the negative feedback thrown at us because of its tone or context. Some of it could actually help us improve our writing.
Strip away the rude demeanor, the unnecessarily harsh words, the obvious over-exaggeration, and you might still find some valid feedback.
Like, you use the word ‘like’ too much.
