Word Prompt

Impervious

What do you say is the best quality of a good writer? I would say being impervious to criticism. I don’t mean being insensitive to the needs of their readers but not to take umbrage at the advice offered by people who “mean well” . This is the requirement of every new writer. People who are experienced authors have already grown a thick skin to counter this tendency of others to “know better than you” what needs to be done. Though I am not a bona-fide writer, I know people who often get discouraged and stop writing because of criticism.

  1. We can take a small criticism and turn it into a huge, throbbing echo of negativity against ourselves. You know writing doesn’t follow one form of antidote. It’s really in the eye of the beholder, at times they need to clean the crust out their own eye. 😆 I’m building up to gaining thicke skin. If I can conquer my friends and family criticism, then I’m ready to face the world.
