A Writer's Lot is not a Happy One

There's a saying. It goes, "No one mourns a critic."

However, writers take criticism very personally. Personally, if I read a bad review I find it hard to find my mojo and get writing again, so I tend not to read reviews in the morning.

Here, Ben Aaronovitch tells it like it is.

It's alright - my wife doesn't read my stuff in the first place!
