I'm an author trying to make a living doing what I do best which is writing. Welcome to my blog, and this is my journey to becoming a successful author. I write, read, and love to research. I write contemporary fantasy, paranormal romance, and new adult. I love writing poetry, novels, novellas, and short stories. I have my head in the clouds, and love to dream in my writing room.
I saw the movie #Deadpool which starred Ryan
Reynolds as the main character, and I didn’t know what to expect at first. I’m
glad I did because it’s a superhero movie unlike any other I’ve ever seen. It
was a good movie and here are my top reasons to see it.
Ryan Reynolds is
awesome! He completely embodies Deadpool in every way. I love his humor.
It’s more of a comedy
then anything else, and I love how they introduce the opening title and the songs.It makes fun of other
movies, and it even has parts where he talks to the audience.
The endless supply of sex jokes,
boobies, and adult humor makes the movie enjoyable and it kept me laughing the
I love foul-mouth anti-heroes. They are better than regular ones.
I love his story line, and yes he
is not a hero, but I loved the twists and turns the story took.
It had Colossus and Negasonic Teenage Warhead
which are part of the X-Men and I loved their characters too.
It was also an R-Rated super hero
movie, and I enjoyed every minute of it. I loved the realness of it, and it was
a movie I can’t wait to see the sequel to.
I got my first one star
review for my book The Killer Contract Agency, and besides the fact that it
stung a second in the end it really didn’t bother me. Now I’m over it, and the reason why
I’m writing a blog post is to tell you that your book will get bad reviews. It’s
inevitable to get a bad review, and not everyone is going to like your book.
Which is okay, and I’m not expecting everyone to like it. Reviews are mainly
for the reader, and it’s more for other readers to decide to read it or not. It’s
nothing personal, and it just wasn’t their cup of tea. Sometimes they don’t
even read the genre, and sometimes they pick it up because someone else
recommended it to them or it was part of a group. I’ll never be an author that
bashes a reviewer, and I’ll never comment on bad reviews. To me they are
learning experiences, and something everyone faces especially when they put
themselves out there. I wrote the story years ago, and every time I finish a
novel I gain more experience. I’ve dealt with bad feedback before, and I wound
up blocking the person who kept having issues with my work. Hell, she even
posted a work in progress I gave her over Facebook and made fun of it online. I
trusted her too, and then after a while when my novel came out she said the
same thing, and nitpicked and nitpicked. Why does the main guy look like this?
Because I like it like that, and she even went as far as to tell me how the
book should go. I had to block her in order to not let her comments ruin my
day. Every time I talked to her it was draining, and it went too far when she
told me about how horribly edited it was and that I needed to read it over. I
took the good things to heart, but I was sick of how her crap was ruining my
day. There is a difference though, and her feedback was not helpful since she
didn’t tell me why. It will suck taking all the crap from people, but that is
why you take a book to beta readers. They are more helpful than anything else.
They actually tell you what works and what doesn’t.
I’m not going to post the
review on this blog at all. It will happen and all books receive bad reviews.
But know the difference between a troll and a constructive review. I’ve also
worked retail, and I let every customer bother me to the point where it ruined
my day, and in turn I had to stop myself from it and I moved on. I’m so much
better at handling negative criticism now then I was.
