Writers reacting badly

How not to handle a bad review

Check out this interesting article on writers who reacted badly to a review http://listverse.com/2015/02/15/10-writers-who-took-themselves-way-too-seriously/?utm_content=buffer60440&utm_medium=social&utm_source=facebook.com&utm_campaign=buffer

So if you ever get famous, remember everyone is entitled to their own opinions and even though they might give you a negative review you need to be the bigger person.

Probably easier said than done, I know, but any reaction can be copied and go viral. The replies in these cases obviously got more attention than the books.
