How to NOT act when facing your critics...

Long story short, a guy named AL posted a review to Jacqueline Howett's book and it apparently didn't suit her tastes.

What does she do? She logs in and starts ranting and raving about how she writes just fine and no one on there understands her. She even tells one person to F-off when they don't defend her. Basically, she acts like a spoil child that no one treats as the princess.

Seriously, follow up on it.

This is what every beginning writer should think about before they even put pen to paper:

"Can I accept the fact that some people may not like my work, even go as far as hating it and mocking it at every turn? Can I handle reading a review that doesn't praise it? Can I handle it like a rational human being, learn from the critics and make my futue stories better?"

If the answer is no, then the beginning writer should consider not publishing until he/he is ready to face reality.
