I have had only positive feedback from my readers so far and so am spurred to carry on writing, but I would like to be told what worked and what didn't. I can take constructive criticism and would use it wisely.
It helps me a lot. Honest feedbacks are what I always hanker for.It simply adds beauty to my work!
Absolutely! I'm always open to comments and criticism, and love to hear from people.
Indeed it does, I am Twitter and Facebook dependent for feedback ... when there is a deathly silence, I know there is something wrong.
Yes, particularly with the fine details. When I was trying to make a story location generic for example, a US reader let me know that certain US laws made a plot point illegal in the US, despite the fact it was perfectly legal in the original setting.
It can also help if someone starts asking why characters have taken an action; it lets me know I need to clarify the event, or provide more details.
if it is really feed-back, yes. i think that there is an art to giving feed-back. if all of it is negative, then i usually don't think the critique is honest.
Yes, especially because when attemtping to reach a target audience you have to know what they need and want to hear; you have to know what moves them.
In the beginning, yes, then when I changed to writing about politics, and I started getting death threats, not so much. Now, I take it in stride. I am sort of sensitive, so I make it a point to just hear from friends what they think of something. It's much easier when knowing something is coming from a place of love, than someone who just hates the person they think you are.
Yes. I started a critique group in my community and as writers we give serious thought and construtive feedback to each other.
It sure does. Every artist needs an audience and a little applause here and there.
Very much. Even negative feedback can be beneficial. It's good to know something you've written made someone take the effort to respond to.
Immensely. Both before and after publication.
Yes, I appreciate reader-feed back because it helps me to ensure that I'm writing what my readers want and need to hear. It is very important to me to listen to my readers.
