It's kind of impossible to ignore other people's opinions on your work, when, as a writer, their opinions essentially make or break you.

The median opinion is the one I pay attention to the most...the people who adore it or think it's crap...I try to stay away from thinking too much about THEM. ...Especially the people who think it's crap. ;)

But isnt a certain amount of insecurity a good thing? Surely without that we'd just be all smug arseholes ... ?

Just me - That's true. I think writers are especially more vunerable to criticism than other jobs. Mostly because you pour your soul into that stuff if you're doing it write. The more honest you are, the better writer you become, the more when people disagree you're personally offended.

jman - And "roly poly little bat faced girl". Probably my favourite line ever.

Londonlass - Yeah, to a point. I just think we lay ourselves open more to criticism, which makes us doubly insecure.
