(The) Writing Life--Or...

...why writers shouldn't take reviews too seriously.



See these?


"...would recommend for light reading..."

"...it felt very heavy..."

"...a very light story with a heavy theme..."



"...I laughed out loud..."

"...if you want some humor...skip over this one."



"...I found myself smiling..."

"Too melodramatic..."



"Riveting Romance..."

"...decidedly subdued romance..."




"...predictable..."

"I could not wait to see what would happen next..."




"...I get the feeling that I was supposed to be happy..."

"...I really cared about the characters in this book..."



"...no real conflict..."

"...story too gripping for anything less than a five..."





"Made me want to cry..."

"...made me smile..."





"...somewhat realistic..."

"...a beautiful story of true to life struggles..."

"...IT WAS SOOOOO REAL..."



"...angsty and...depressing..."

"Cute...."
