It’s been almost two years since I updated my blog. That’s a long time. Quite a bit has happened. Lets do catch up quickly after I posted my last blog post (it was right after my grandmother and great uncle passed away).
-My boyfriend’s brother passed away
-Got a new job
-Was in a wedding
-Went to Disney for the first time
-Got engaged in Disney
-A friend from high school’s step father passed away
2015 was a very bad year for me mentally because of all the deaths, but there were some positives.
Everyone who writes a story whether it be a fanfiction, a book, a short story, a narrative, etc, always wants feedback. They might want someone to edit it while giving that feedback as well, but I have often encountered many people cannot take constructive criticism. A good portion of people I have reviewed via the internet (and for class) have only wanted good or positive feedback. I can not, in good faith, give an “OH EM GEE. Your story was PERFECT. I LOVED IT SO SO MUCH I WANT TO CRY” type feedback. So how, as a writer and reader, can you give and take constructive criticism?
