After publishing her first book, titled ‘Party Girl’, the author notes that she received her first bad review. Consequently, this had adverse effects on her as she experienced what she termed as “critique grief” (Hollis, 2018). At first, she was in denial, and kept going through this review, and things became worse until she entered the phase of acceptance. However, she began having doubts, and thought that maybe she was a terrible writer. Over time, she came to the realization that she could not allow people’s opinion define who she is. She understood that it was possible for her to write terribly, but learned to take constructive criticism, and push herself to grow as a writer. With this, she would not allow a bad review to characterize her as a bad writer. She also came to understand that there are different audiences for different materials when it came to arts. As such, what some people would not find appealing to them, other people would be fascinated by it.
