Donna… I feel the same. There’s no way I’d do this challenge without the hearts. Yeah… fame comes with a territory. The more you write the more fans you’ll have who will be leaving you different flavors of comments.
And I disagree with all those who say we should be writing for ourselves. If this was the case, why not writing in our journals? We write and publish keeping our readers in mind. Good luck on your journey and thank you for your support!
