Conundrum or Not?
This isn’t your basic conundrum… a confusing and difficult problem or question. I don’t really think should even be construed as a possible conundrum.
Question: How do you feel as a writer, designer, artistic person, poet, clothier, or anything…
How do you feel about a person docking you one star because they “don’t like your genre” or they think watercolors are the only way to paint and so “other media used” is docked? Granted I have only given two examples for referencing.
One person docked me one star because they “didn’t like my genre” which, in this case is my memoir. I don’t feel like a one star docking was fair just due to the genre. Honestly, they never had to read my memoir, no one was coerced, everyone has their favorite genres, etc.
I like many genres, and occasionally I will step out to venture forth in finding a book genre that I don’t read. I give a fair review, and no docking simply because I “don’t like the genre”. In all fairness, I truly have two genres I won’t consider reading, but I do read a lot of books not in my normal genres. No one is docked for their book’s genre. How do all of you feel?
