I hope I remember this if and when I get published

I stumbled upon this post via Facebook. http://www.maryrobinettekowal.com/journal/debut-author-lessons-hate-mail/ It reminds me a little bit about when I used to post my stories for critque on an online website and the very first story I ever wrote, got a less than great review. I suspected the person didn’t honestly know what they talking about because they kept using literary terms that when I looked them up, didn’t jive with the context they used them in. Since the other critques were helpful and more positive, I took it with a grain of salt but I was still royally upset for several days. I know people won’t like everything I write for a variety or reasons because as a reader, I don’t like everything I read including works by my favorite authors.
