Today I want to talk about your responsibility as a writer. Hint: it’s NOT just about writing books.
I recently witnessed a young writer, in a Facebook group, ask for critique on her first chapter.
I and several other writers offered to read it. I made copious notes and sent it back, however she couldn’t access my notes due to a “version” issue of the software we were using.
However, other writers had better luck. After receiving her critique, she got angry, left a rather snarky message on the group and left.
It showed little for the writer’s maturity, when they lashed out and even less for their ability to accept criticism.
