Most art forms comes from within; eventually released like a fledgling and leave the nest. The emancipation is not without anticipation, and the artist, if they want it or not, will find their work reviewed. And when this occurs, each individual artist must call upon their inner self; for criticism can be like a finding a flower and then suddenly getting stung by a bee.
On the other hand……Just remember… reviews are like a storms; some hurt the ego, while others appear like a rainbow.
#Thankyou @readersfavorite for my rainbow!
A growing child needs a variety of foods to be strong and healthy; but they also require a varied reading diet to stimulate lifelong reading. A daily well- balanced reading diet may be designed using a menu with at least one serving of:
Fruits & Vegetables – Poetry
Soup – Current Events
Fish – Science/Nature
Meat – Biography/History
Dessert – Fiction
Milk – Sports/Hobbies
After-dinner mint – Comics
But what happens when reading does not go down as well as intended? Allow reading deficits to go on for too long and they can manifest into more than a dislike for reading. Not all readers are created equal but like the saying by Maimonides: Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime. The analogy is that offering reading strategies help readers become better readers.
So, if you want to help someone make sense of the world, give the gift of reading.
