  • Do you over-react if someone criticizes your Poetry?

I would probably be hurt and offended, but I don't think I'd do any of the first three. On the other hand, I'd probably have a hard time doing the fourth! So I don't post my poems.

Still flailing at windmills Ms Don Quixote? Think of the worst critiques you received from college professors, those stung, these become laughable after awhile. Now, when you get a good critique here, thank the person and learn.

I normally get offended like any person would. I do none of the suggestions you have listed. For me, I think anything anyone writes, be it a poem or an essay or a paragraph..etc should not be disparaged and used as a weapon against its author. We write because we feel and think, and we have the freedom and right to do both :) PS: I posted a poem yesterday. I really really wished to share it with the community, but my question was reported seconds after I posted it! I was disappointed!

i take the critique seriously and try to learn from it. If it gives me nothing but trash, i do not stoop to pick it up, i simply ignore it.

Of course not Cazzie! A critique is what we learn cannot believe how much I have learnt from those who criticize my little writes...thanks to a good critique I realised that I was only the same old same old words in practically all my writes! I had not even noticed! Now, I'm more careful! : )

I rise up. Because criticism shows things you may have missed and makes you strive to do better. Also every person that reads it will like it.
