I am over my funk and back to writing. After I forced myself to read the rest of the review, I realized I needed to get over it and move on. Yes, it wasn’t complimentary, but many of the things the reviewer criticized were definitely issues surrounding my style and the way I chose to tell the story. I felt much better after I wrote back and thanked the reviewer for her time and said I was proud of my work, which I am!

Thank you for all the positive energy. I do enjoy writing 98% of the time, and I plan to go on doing it for as long as my fingers can find the keys!
