What a fool’s errand it is to answer critics.
They will always be a minority, of course, but hearing their petty criticisms can get in your head if you are not careful…
Do something you believe in. Do it for the right reasons. And don’t worry about the outcome.
For how a person receives your work is one of the few things you have no control over – Van Gogh too.
Again, it is not an accident that there is not a comment section on this website.
As for my blogging, I do the same thing everyday.
I publish 6 more posts.
And keep going for one day longer than someone else did.
It is a waste of emotions to answer critics; better to stay in print long after they are dead.
