“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be somebody who hates peaches.” ~ Dita Von Teese.
This quote can be helpful when dealing with criticism of one’s writing. No matter how polished or professional your work is, a reader may take exception to your style, subject matter or presentation. Not everyone will like what you’ve written or how you’ve written your story.
The best piece of advice for a writer is to firstly write for oneself. That way, the writing will come from the heart. Of course, many changes will be made from the first draft to publication but the story will remain true. Never allow the possibility of criticism stifle your artistic nature. There will be those who like peaches.
