I once read somewhere, ‘when you’re a writer, those who are the most vocal against you are often the ones who admire you the most.’ I don’t know anymore; sure, I’ve been jealous of writers before, but there seems to be a dearth of criticism online, especially in writing groups, designed to kill the messenger. Those who are the loudest are often the ones not saying anything.
