A strong friendship doesn’t need daily conversation or being together. As long as the relationship lives in the heart, true friends never part.
This is one of the best pieces of writerly advice I ever got.
The next time you’re feeling bad about a negative review or comment, try this trick:
Think of a book you think is prefect and brilliant. Now to go Goodreads or Amazon and look at its one-star reviews.
Nothing is immune. There is nothing so wonderful that someone won’t hate it, and nothing so awful that someone won’t love it.
Decided to do this for Spirited Away. First review was about how the dvd wouldn’t play. The Second review was a person who wrote a good review as a one star review to get people to read it.
You know you have a good friend when they know you’re going say something stupid and they let you say it anyway.
