Want someone to read your writing work and story’s?…Be very careful who you choose as it can bode either well for you or plain bad.
– Let’s call this person Joe.
I thought I’d read Joe one of my story’s, in fact it was the last story I wrote: ‘Ne Plus Ultra’. I didn’t twig it at the time, but it was Joe’s negative and derogatory remark that subconsciously stopped me from writing.
To have Joe surprised that it was me who wrote it (I don’t share my story’s with anybody) felt good, but the next second being mocked that my story content was a load of bull****, was shocking.
~ When asking someone to read over your work, make sure they know something about writing and that they are in support of you ~
Some people like to put others down to make themselves feel better and care nothing for the hurt they will cause in doing so.
Joe’s reaction to my story was disgraceful and Bad. It wasn’t about my story, it was about him and who he is. And…It wasn’t even a critique, but a plain and simple put down.
Now you all understand the gist of what I am trying to say… Be very careful who you let read your words: You’ll either be lifted and encouraged or slammed like I was.
People have their own agendas… Just make sure you know who is behind you.
