Coping with Bad Reviews

Four philosophies:

Mendacity “Me? I don’t care what other people think.”

Superiority “The reviewers don’t know what they’re talking about, dahling.”

Denial “A bad review? With my writing? Be reasonable!”

Pragmatism “There’s only one thing worse than being talked about… not being talked about.”

After surfing the net and finding a bad review of my new play I was left quite disheartened, especially as it was not very constructive... I found your post and it gave me a lift, so thank you :)

Thanks Danny. Feedback like yours is better than a review any day.
