How do you react to someone who is critical of your work? Personally I am not very happy when offers ” constructive ” criticism on my writing, unless I ask for it. If it is in answer to my request, I appreciate it. Like I often ask my husband to read one of my posts and ask for his opinion on them. In fact when I started my blog, I was pretty unsure of myself and would show him all of my posts. And it was his encouragement that gave me the confidence to write more and on different topics and formats.

So what is your reaction if someone tells you that there are a number of flaws in your work?

  1. I’m ok with correction in most cases. If I make mistake, please let me know. In areas where I’m trying to learn, such as poetry, I am very interested in more seasoned poets looking at my work and offering suggestions. But! if I feel someone has targeted me to critique my every word, or is doing it with a hidden agenda, then it is different. If I trust the person means well, completely ok with it!

  2. If someone points out a typo, misspelling, or some other mistake in one of my posts, I welcome and appreciate it. If someone is critical of something I wrote because I posted about a controversial topic, I’m okay with that, too, as long as their criticism is about what I wrote and not about me, personally. But if someone says that I’m not smart or that I’m stupid because they disagree with my opinion or perspective, that is where I draw the line. That’s not criticism, that’s trolling.
