|IWSG Sign Up|
I’m getting good reviews on my books, so I’m very lucky, but there are times when reviewers write things that make me feel like the kid caught doing something bad and hauled in front of the principal. That principal thing only happened to me once, but when I remember the experience I know what insecurity and shame for not doing the right thing feels like.
We writers are such a vulnerable lot. We want to do the right thing. We don’t set out to make ourselves insecure or ashamed by writing badly, but we can’t wow everyone, can we? And when we fall short, one thing we can do to keep our keels on the even, is to remember we have a lot of people who support us, who understand exactly what it’s like to be called up in front of the principal.
