Rose DesRochers on Accepting Critique Advice

You can please some of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time.

You write the way that you do and if people don’t like it, let it run like water off a duck’s back. As a writer you’ll soon be able to tell the difference from reviews that are helpful and those that are hurtful.

There is nothing worst than reviews from the perfectionist who is so full of themself, that they nitpick every detail of something that you’ve written.

To them your work is a mess and you have no talent. But as the wise old saying goes, opinions are like assholes, and everyones got one. And if opinions are like assholes, in the Writing Community there are quite a few.

Remember, for every one person that dislikes your Writing, there will be two people who love your writing. In this line of work, like any, everyone wants to be a critique and the sad part is some of those critiquing are in no place to critique. Listen to those trying to be helpful and take the rest with a grain of salt.
