Day 30 Story - Listening to Critics

This story (365 Stories in a Year blog) is about criticism. This is a subject most writers and speakers do not want to face because most all of us fear having others tell us what is wrong with the words we have worked and sweated over. We want them to be good and when they aren’t we tend to hide.

Three of the most important times that I have grown in my profession came as the result of criticism. You will find all three instances in these stories at some point. If I had not listened to my critics, I would not be where I am today.

Read this story and realize that critiques are simply expressions of opinion even when they hurt. They are meant to help you make your work better. Take them as such and do what you need to do.

When this idea arose, I almost didn’t want to write the story. However, the lesson is so important that I decided it had to be told.
