Every writer has a process.
1. I sit down with an idea, see that blank screen, and say, “Oh no, I don’t know what I’m doing. Is this even going to work? I suck.” You know, the usual.
2. I write. If I need to do research (which is usually the case), I do that first. But the important part is just writing.
3. Once I’m finished and I’ve edited everything to acceptable levels (whatever that means), I sit back and say, “Oh, okay. That wasn’t so bad. Turned out pretty good, in fact.”
When I start my next project or article, it’s right back to “Oh no,” and the process repeats itself.
You know what I hate about Internet Marketers?
Most of them are lazy.
We all know it’s ethically frowned upon to write reviews for your own books, much less to write fake reviews for books by other authors. It happens, though. Some even don pseudonyms and secretly promote their books on forums.
Boggles my mind.
But how should authors handle negative reader reviews? Should they respond at all?
When you get hit with that very first negative blog comment, it hurts. It’s demoralizing. Here you are, working as hard as you can, and then someone swoops in right underneath you and tells you it sucks. It’s stupid. It’s boring.
Yeah, thanks guys.
Please excuse the mess while I transfer The Writer’s Pulse back to its own server.
Shouldn’t take too long. You might run into a broken link or an odd template spill, so mind your step and keep all hands and arms inside the vehicle at all times. Comments might be disabled for a while, as well.
