In the Words of John Steinbeck

Ever feel like no one appreciates your work? You’re friends and family praise you and one random stranger, but two other strangers rip into your work and so none of the others feel like the truth?

Take this note from famous author, John Steinbeck:

“Unless a reviewer has the courage to give you unqualified praise, I say ignore the bastard.”

If you enjoy writing, if someone you know enjoys it too, if you’re insanely popular – no matter what your critics say, just remember that you aren’t writing for them. You’re writing for you.

And that’s all I have to say about it.

Ciao Tutti
