Comic: Fairy Tale Critiquing Angst + some advice for writers and illustrators

It's so important for writers and illustrators to develop a thick hide in this business. If you don't, chances are good that you won't be able to handle the critiques (solicited or not) and bad reviews. Learn how to take negative feedback gracefully.

And never EVER publicly respond to a negative review. This applies to friends of authors as well as authors themselves.

Great advice. A picture is even better!

This cracks me up on so many levels (writer, editor, fairy tale nerd, writer's critique group member...)
