I was reading through the archive and found the following. I'd so forgotten it that it made me laugh out loud.
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.”
