Daily Post: Handle with Care

How are you at receiving criticism? Do you prefer that others treat you with kid gloves, or go for brutal honesty? —

Although I insist that I only want honesty, I have to admit that I dislike brutal honesty in terms of critiquing my writing. My confidence is a delicate veil over my bottomless pit of uncertainty, and when it comes to critiquing my writing I am unnaturally sensitive. Annoying, and even I know it. But there it is.

I do not, however, usually advocate for people to lie to me about it. If one doesn’t like it, I’d prefer one just said so and was nice about it. I don’t mind; I’ll be the first to say that my writing isn’t exactly universally appealing. But I don’t want to hear rudeness about it.



I have an MA in Publishing, Literature & Writing, with special emphasis on digital publishing and web development. I also have a BA in English Language & Literature with a minor in Linguistics. I am interested in the social impact of literature, LGBTQIA+ media, intersectional feminism and sociolinguistic analysis. I host a queer-focused book club, and have a bad habit of buying ten times more books than I will ever be able to read.
