...the author of this blog is not knocking reviews nor reviewers, but is mainly trying to find balance, serenity, and a sense of humour in the outrageous world of I loved versus I hated...
Okay, I know it's been forever since I've posted, but this one post is going to grant me forgiveness and make you pee your pants. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time.
As writers, we all look at reviews as a love/hate relationship. We love the good ones and hate the bad. But moreover, quite often we don't get more than a one line explanation of why someone didn't like our work, and sometimes not even that. (Don't you just love the poor star rating without a word to go with it...) Even with an explanation, it seems that what one person thinks is brilliant, another thinks is a unbelievable. I also find it funny how a great review lifts us up for a short time, while a meh or bad review can bum us out for days or even weeks.
As I release more books, and have a few more reviews coming in, at least I think they'll be coming in, lol, I'm trying to keep an even keel...I can't please everyone and some folks simply won't like what I've written. It doesn't mean others will feel the same and I have to learn to roll with it... of course I'd much rather do as this next author in the video.
If EVER there was a single creation to sum up the roller coaster ride known as reviews, this is it!!!
See... I told you it was hilarious. I think the woman's expressions are what puts it over the edge for me. Thanks to my great pal Bron for sending me this link and making my day... you rock girl.
Hugs to all and thanks for dropping by.
