Constructive criticism is an art. It is effectively articulated by knowledgeable minds after considering every aspect of a literary piece. Ignorant minds perceive criticism to be a diatribe borne out of jealousy or an unreasonable argument. Such views of criticism are ubiquitous, due to the popular and obsessive perception to interpret this effort from a myopic viewpoint.
Mostly, criticism is regressive, an art not perfected, or usually used with malicious intent. Sometimes, criticism is cleverly disguised as sarcastic praises, thinly veiled due to an obtuse mindset.
In creative journey an individual should not be perturbed by criticism or allow excessive praise hinder the journey; both are equally detrimental. Being self-critical, introspective, and self-motivated is essential to enjoy the creative journey with dignity.
