Also did 10 push-ups this morning. Woo hoo!
First day back at work. Yea! I’m ready for what’s next. Whatever comes my way, I’m ready.
A friend of mine received a negative book review from a major publication two weeks ago. It was a bit of a crushing blow for her memoir. The book was on an upward trajectory. She has been doing all the right things—interviews, blog tours, lots of visibility in all the places you might expect. But this was a bit of a literary buzz kill. The reviewer said the book didn’t live up to the hype. Ugh. It’s really eye-opening to see a life’s work crushed by a critic.
So my question to you: as a reader, is there value in a negative review?
