Day 108 Story - Getting a Royal Trashing

From time to time something I do or write gets royally trashed. This story (365 Stories in a Year blog) is about one of the biggest of these trashings and the effect it had on my literary future.

It didn’t help that the person doing the trashing in this case was my most respected mentor, Sol Stein. It’s not often that anyone gets to work with a mentor of that caliber and to not meet expectations can be devastating.

In this story you will see how I recovered from that critique and how I changed everything to take my writing to an even higher level.

It’s also a cautionary tale about listening to criticism and taking the valid comments as words of wisdom, not attacks.
