A word prompt to get your creativity flowing this weekend. How you use the prompt is up to you. Write a piece of flash fiction, a poem, a chapter for your novel…anything you like. Or take the challenge below – there are no prizes – it’s not a competition but rather a fun writing exercise. If you want to share what you come up with, please leave a link to Sammi’s comment section.
Title is included in my 106 words.
OH, FOR THICKER SKIN
One morning I went to Amazon, as I do occasionally and found a new review on my first novel that has an average of 4.5 stars. Eagerly I read the latest. Despair riddled me as I skimmed the scathing comments.
“One-dimensional characters. Immature writing.”
By the time I finished reading three paragraphs of venom I couldn’t breathe. My head throbbed.
I quit. I’ll never write another word. I’m a failure.
The next day another review appeared on the same book.
“Fantastic. Realistic characters. Endearing story.”
Whom do I believe? To what voices should I listen?
If only my feelings weren’t so delicate.
