Since I've last talked to you all I've had two stories published, Love Unbound and Governmental Affairs with the wonderfully talented Cleo Taurus, met some wonderful new people and started on a new story.
I've had something on my mind for a while and just want to voice it. First let me say that this is just MY opinion.
I love to get reviews and comments on the stories that I write. I know full well that not everyone will like them but when giving a review or comment it would be helpful to give the writer constructive feed back and not just bash their work. If you don't like it, you don't like it but you don't have to be mean about your comments.
Writers put a lot of hard work, feelings, energy and time into creating something good and to have someone just out right bash it is horrible. Some people are just mean and don't care who they hurt.
In my opinion all feedback is used to better the writer. But when the comment is nothing but negative words all it does is discourage and hurt. Its hard to see and hear good writers hurt by others carelessly written words. Believe it or not we have feelings.
I've had some people tell me what they like and don't like about my stories. Those comments and conversations have but extremely helpful to me. This is the kind of thing I'm talking about, things to help an author not tare him or her down.
I truly hope I don't offend anyone. It is/was not my intention.
