Depends when it comes. But sure constructive criticism is always helpful.
i'm newly published so i haven't been reviewed yet. I am a person that would love a good review from an outside source. i would revel in it good or bad. A writer informed me if it is bad take all the negatives they say at go at them with a unbridled fury! many of them couldn't write a simple rhyme but they will chew you out for all their massive insecurities in not be able to construct a simple sentence! jeaulous taken to a deep degree
Of course, feedback always helps for the next writing assignment, but you have to choose which feedback to take into account
Sometimes, but not always. It really just depends on my life at that particular moment.
I always enjoy hearing what readers think of my characters and stories. It's always interesting to hear if they saw the same "movie" in their minds as they read the book.
Yes - if it's creative feedback that's meant to help and inspire, I welcome it. I've made a lot of friends in the business who are fellow authors as well, and their comments are always appreciated.
Unfortunately, my fictional pieces have not received reader feedback yet at all, as they have not been circulated, but in my non-fiction based work...ALL feedback (negative or positive) has been extremely beneficial to my development, so I do think that it helps.
Absolutely, I love to hear from someone who has enjoyed a recipe. It is wonderful to share.
Feedback is essential. Either from a reader who buys something I wrote or from the people who belong to the writer’s group where I workshop my stories. When I worked as a section commander, I loved participatory management. Ask people for their ideas and opinions. Then you can implement them or say, “Thanks for your input, but I’ll do it my way.” No one has all the answers, but a good supervisor—or writer—should know where to get them.
You bet! In the beginning, when others read my work I was amazed at what parts of the story they liked. It always seemed to be something I considered minor in the scheme of the plot. Then after joining an excellent writing site, I desired assistance and comments from others going through this maze like me.
But, prior to publication of a novel, I seek out certain friends and writers who are first of all, honest, and second, ask questions or make suggestions. Some I use, others not, but I still give pause and thought to all suggestions.
Reader feedback has been instrumental in the success I've had. I posted a piece one time in one of my writer's groups and the feedback given to me was that I wrote dialogue in a similar fashion to Elmore Leonard and suggested I read some of his westerns and learn. I went to the used book store and bought every Leonard western I could find and read them all, noting specifically how he carried his story with dialogue. I re-edited my stories with what I learned and recently signed a contract to have my novella of western fiction published as an e-book. Could I have done it without the feedback? Who knows.
It always does. It encaurages me to keep writing I love it when someone makes a comment and don't even care if it's a good or bad one cause it means they read the whole thing and have an oppinion about it. You can always learn from other's point of view.
Absolutly, it has a way of boosting ur confidence, good or bad, and it brings this joy, that you are not alone d readers are with you on it.
I love reader feedback. It not only helps me, it makes me aware of what my readers are seeing and thinking. Please give me reader feedback.
