Do trolls get to you?

Don't let 'em. As I tell all my writers, if something you write provokes a response--good or bad--in someone, that's a good thing. And if you're writing for a site with a large readership you can also take solace in the fact that more people are reading what you write than reading mean comments. And WAY more people are silently appreciating your work than loudly criticizing it.

Unless someone threatens you or veers into the the vile territory of the purely hateful I don't mind people expressing their opinions about what I write. In fact I welcome them. And even if they hate it I appreciate them taking the time to read it. And so should you.
