Seth's Blog: What are professional reviews for? : So true, so true... listening to the wrong people can be a problem

All a long way of saying that if you make something that people are likely to criticize, pay careful attention to which critics you listen to. They probably don't view the world the way you do, and worse, the way your fans do.

Reading criticism just to ruin your day is a waste of your talent.

I have always told my students; Choose your critics well. Do not be led astray by those for whom the criticism is a distraction to their own shortcomings.

Good critics are as important as good fans.

Bad critics are as useful as a pile of steaming dog shit.

(No offense meant to steaming dog shit everywhere...)
