Bullies and Constructive Criticism

Updated on May 7, 2013


Recently I have been bullied by someone on my writing. He or she did it anonymously proving a coward. He/she even went so far as criticizing my readers and fellow writers!

Don’t let anyone bully you about your creativity!

You are special and gifted and so are your creations as well!

Constructive criticism is different than being bullied by negative, mean people.

Here is what a bully and a coward is >

(“Somebody who anonymously harms those who cannot defend themselves”)

(An aggressive person who intimidates or mistreats people)

“Constructive criticism >>is the process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one. In collaborative work, this kind of criticism is often a valuable tool in raising and maintaining performance standards.”

Please do not pay credence to bullies. Never give up because of someone’s cowardly unconstructive opinions.

Remember there is no such thing as bad art work and there is no such thing as bad writing

This has been proven through history! Many a famous artists and writers’ works were not accepted in their time.

If you have a drive to express yourself and create than never stop!

Again all creations are special, because you the creator are special and unique!

Why people bully would be a list a mile long, but know for sure it is the bullies issue and not your ability to create great works of art or writings.

Very likely these same bullies are at least unhappy and you can almost bet they have abusive issues in their back ground.

So keep creating and showing off your distinctive wonderful works!

Have a great day!

      Secondimage It is not that I mind constructive criticism when it is done in a manner to help and not assault.

      You must give my ego some kudos though at least I knew better and hopefully helped others know better when attacked negatively.

      I especially do not want to hear my readers battered either.

      I look forward in the future to your fair minded, balanced constructive criticism.

      I do like to learn.

      I went to college for Fine Arts and Science and believe me we had to put up with much constructive criticism that made us better artist.

      Thank you for your thoughtful comment here.

      So, someone who doesn't like your work and criticises it is, to your mind, a bully? Do you think JK Rowling thinks that any negative critiques of her offerings means that they must be bullies? Or do you think that perhaps they found mistakes, imbalances and inconsistencies in the work?

      I'm sorry to hear about your bullying experience. I have also been bullied in the past for writing on controversial issues and having my own opinions. My bully actually defamed my character and reputation on an international website. They were all lies and some people actually believed the things that she was saying about me. I ended up leaving, but she kept following me repeatedly from one site to the other. I guess that haters hate what they can't intimate. And you're right, they are cowards. I wish now that I could have confronted my bully rather than ignore her, but you only learn from the past. Keep doing what you do best which is writing.
