anne-wayman“If someone says something awful, or otherwise indicates they don’t like what you’ve written, the first thing to do is take a deep breath or two and ground yourself. Know that every writer – yes every single writer who dares to put themselves out there to readers will have to handle criticism from time to time. It doesn’t matter if you’re writing for a popular blog or magazine and your work is seen by thousands, or you share the poem you just wrote with a loved one, you open yourself to others in a way few people do. Some of your readers are apt to tell you, one way or another, they think you’ve done a poor job.

It may help to remember that there has never been a piece of writing that couldn’t be improved. Okay, I have no idea how to prove that sentiment but I firmly believe it. ”  – Anne Wayman
