Has a friend said something stupid like:

“Why are you spending your time doing that? You don’t expect it to get published do you?”

I hate people. Most of them suck and even the ones that don’t are often self-involved pain-in-the-asses.

A shitty comment can take the wind out of your sails in an instant.

“Ha ha! Don’t quit your day job!” is one of my favorites, usually uttered by someone who spends 40 hours a week in a cubicle on Facebook.

Look, you started this novel thing for yourself. Keep it to yourself. make it your own private hobby, your own indulgence.

No one else will get it except other people doing it and even some of them won’t.

Shhh…don’t explain, don’t justify.

Sit down, ass on chair, fingers on keyboard. Type!
