It is my duty and pleasure to announce, that after a period of writer’s block and a difficult time at home, I also received my first rating on GoodReads. And it sucked. Got two stars.
I have been waiting three months for someone even to pick the damn book up and take a look at it, so I guess I should be glad that this person potentially read at least a few sentences of it. (Even though I am defending myself by saying that he must not have read the whole thing cover to cover, MUST not have). That’s my rationalizing anyway.
More bad reviews to come, I am sure of it. And the first cut is the deepest, I have no doubt. So I am using this as fuel to write this morning. Then maybe some yoga. Or I could go to the old fall back we used in gymnastics. “It doesn’t matter what they score you because those judges only WISH they could do what we do in the gym.”
A job interview, a family crisis, writer’s block, and my first rating being a bad one all in a single day. FUN FUN FUN!
And don’t give me that nonsense about not reading your own reviews, because this early in the game, you know you do. 😉
