Author's Are Not Martyr's
When you write a story you write it knowing how it will begin and how it will end. The meat of the story can vary and in a lot of cases it does. When you put that chapter out there you do it with the belief that this is how you want it.
Then the reviews come in and mostly they are good but there is always the person who is too scared to put their name so they slip in as a guest. You can't respond to guests on FF so you sit there, and you read their judgement and you stew... and stew.. and stew.
Authors are NOT Martyr's!
We write how we want it to be and we can not please everyone!
The definition of a Martyr is this: a person who sacrifices something of great value and especially life itself for the sake of principle
Our stories are our babies, we help them grow and grow along with them. WE WILL NOT change how we see it to please everyone... WE are Authors!
The definition of Author is: one that originates or creates
Some creations are not so good some are however. When a story is written it comes from the heart of a writer who is suffocated by the power of their imagination. This is our release This is our therapy!
When you read someone's work, be respectful. If you can't understand how hard it is for an author to write a story try it out yourself. Walk in their shoes. I am a writer and a reader. I walk both paths therefore I CAN judge.
Authors.... Write, love it and share it because we need more imagination in this stuffy black and white world!!!
