What have I to say about being insecure with my writing?
Lucky for me, not too much this month.
Everything is running smoothly.
I could complain about time, or should I say the lack of it, but I am learning we all have to deal with that aspect of life.
My blog tour is going smoothly, but I am amazed at the amount of work there is behind the scenes and as usual, I have linked to too many hops, and my desire to visit everyone on the Linky lists is never fulfilled.
I do not know how I would be able to operate without Google Calendar, it really works for me. Being organized is important to me and I rely heavily on keeping my blogging commitments by using this service. Without it I would be swimming up river never achieving anything just like a trout.
Are there devices you rely on to help you?
This month during my tour, I also approached the Goodreads group of which I am a member, offering copies of my books for review. The moderator was lovely and terribly efficient, but sending out approximately 20 books for free at once is a hard thing to do.
What amazed me was the range in the reviews I recieved - from 2 stars to 4's and 5's. One of the 2 star reviews emailed me offering critique pointers, which when I read through, I could not see fault with. Reading through her posted review, I found her English to be quite poor with obvious spelling mistakes, missing words and other grammatical errors.
Even though I can shrug off the review, those 2 stars are there to stay!
How does one cope with these types of reviews?
Is there anything that can be done, or do I turn the other cheek and forget it?
