K.M. Allan is an Australian writer and blogger who I have mentioned here before in a friend-of-a-friend sort of way. I’m going to give her her own entry today because she provides invaluable insights for writers who make up the bulk of my readership. In the wake of her brilliant essay, Grieving a Writing Life, she now brings us an in-depth discussion of Six Ways to Make the Most of Bad Feedback. This is the age of instant contact, and if you’re gonna write, you’re gonna get comments, critiques, and reviews. Not all of them will be of the “You’re the greatest writer I’ve ever read” variety, and being prepared for those of lesser quality is something I can recommend to every aspiring or active writer out there.
K.M. Allan. Remember the name. Bookmark the site. This woman brings a lot of wisdom of the sort you can use if you’re a writer, and I have a feeling that you’ll be seeing her mentioned a great deal around here.
Until we meet again, read well and write better!
