This post by Glennon Melton is brilliant about surviving in an online world that too often behaves like people are not on the other side of the glass screen. Take a read of her post here . I love her perspective that you are not your art’s lawyer!
For another perspective have a read of Mika Mckinnon’s piece over at ABC.net.au –here on writing about science.
Bottom line is – just keep creating, in whatever way you do, because someone is always going to have a whinge!
Brene Brown is another author who is a great read about being true to yourself. Her book, Daring Greatly, opens with a quote from Theodore Roosevelt..
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena…”
So jump into the arena, create, dare greatly, go wild!
