Criticism

_____________________________________
As a writer, receiving criticism is part of the process, but receiving cold, mean comments really destroy my day.

An anonymous person wrote something like "You shouldn't waste a great notebook like that with your writing"

That was so mean! I really am hurt that people say that, there wasn't even any constructive criticism in that comment! If you have something mean to say, then don't say it at all!

I really am trying hard to improve my writing. I'm a daily thesaurus and dictionary reader, and I constantly look up tips and advice from other writers. So please don't put me down like that, I think I need the opposite of mean.

My writing is mediocre, fine, but someday it'll be much better, promise!

Whoever insulted you was an idiot.
Every notebook you fill has reached the highest potential.

That was just plain mean. I personally, love your writing

Awesome post! How can you improve your writing? It's already fabulous! People should be showering you with praise for your writing. See, the 10 year-old even looks up to you for guidance with blogging and writing! Btw, who are Milli and Celtic Traveler; they comment a ton! They should participate in your contest.....
Anyways... thanks so much for helping me with the Google Docs thing!

Can people be really that mean? I am sure that was some jealous person who envies your talent.
Don't worry Kirthi , keep writing and stop caring about such stray comments. They are not worth the time ..

I fully understand. That happened to me once then two people backed me up. STUPID ANONYMOUS PE0PLE! WITH THEIR STUPID THOUGHTS. People are backing you up right now. And you don't need to listen to people that have a different structure of mind. Keep on writing.

Don't you don't need to make it better it's perfect. Do NOT pay attention to brutal thoughts that people think. If you do it's just going to damage yourself esteem. Love always Fara Hope.

Just understand Dozens of people love your writing DO NOT change it for just one person.

Never let anyone put you down. If you believe in yourself you can do anything, the sky is the limit. Pls do continue to write and expand your learning and when you look back you can say I believed in myself and I can do what I love to do.

Wishing you the best of the best.

Hey Kirthi! Btw, an anonymous person decided to comment something like what you were talking about on my Rolling Hills post. It's so annoying! Masks of anonymity are so... ugh. I mean, who would be so cruel and nonsensical to do something like that! I wonder if it was a new follower.....
Anyways, I felt really good when I deleted their comment forever. If they continue posting immature falsehoods, then I'll see what to do about it. Maybe I will have to cancel anonymous users, if there is such a thing...I'll have to see.
Anyways, I'll just ignore them. It helps to know that I'm a better person than them to know not to put people down like that. Who does anonymous think they are? (no one...hence anonymous)
