The one star reviews
So you made your art, you did your craft. Great! I love it! I’d love to see and hear about it.
But (reality time), many people won’t.
They’ll hate your art. They’ll hate that you made it. They’ll hate that they didn’t…or can’t…or won’t.
Then, they’ll take it out on you and you’ll take it personally. Which is a problem. Because when someone attacks, critics, or rates your art, they’re attacking, critiquing, and rating your art. Not you.
Remember that — I have to remind myself every day (really, every minute) — and put a sign on your desk for when you forget.
