What Writing Sourpuss Taught Us – Part 2
We are nearing the release of Sourpuss (January 20, 2019) and early reviews are coming in.
Here are some of our favorites so far.
And for other new authors, if you receive a review that you feel is unfair or unkind, remember what Anton Ego (the food critic from Ratatouille) had to say.
In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so. But there are times when a critic truly risks something, and that is in the discovery and defense of the new. The world is often unkind to new talent, new creations, the new needs friends.
