Funny how often that’s the case, too!
There’s another name for haters — bullies. That’s what they’re doing and if more of us could see that instead of becoming defensive, maybe it might help. I don’t know.
Also ironic how often the people bashing writers haven’t written anything themselves. If they’ve been through the hoops to put work out there, maybe they’d be more considerate. Maybe not, but it makes me wonder.
Really nice piece — thanks! :)
