Why I Don’t Read My Reviews

I have a confession: I don’t read my reviews. I used to read them, way back when I published my first book, but I stopped. Why? For one thing, it was bad for my mental health. It made me more anxious and more critical of my own work. Also, I realized that the reviews didn’t matter. They weren’t meant for me; they were for my readers.

So, I stopped reading my reviews, and I feel much better for it. I haven’t looked back since. Where do you stand on reading reviews for your work? Let me know in the comments below!
