on other people’s writing about my work

Filed under: kaganof — ABRAXAS @ 11:12 am

I have a somewhat rigid approach to writing about the work, whether it be critical of favourable or complimentary or scathing – I hold it all at a distance. I am not yet mature enough to not read it at all (I think that only comes with great maturity and self-confidence) but I am just old enough to know that it is vital not to get taken “off course” by other people’s opinions or takes on the works. By which I don’t mean to sound churlish, but to convey to you something of the distance at which I read about my work (although I do still want to read what is written). It is paradoxical and I have not solved this yet.
