When I was an actor I had a "like me" tag on the back of my shirt. I thought it was part of my job... Now that I write books, I want people to "appreciate my work if its well-done. If it isn't their cup of tea, fine. If I offend a sensibility, that's their issue. Thick skin as a writer comes from intellectual understanding. Its resilient and callused, developed from years of being bruised. You won't stay a writer long without constant growth.
