Critic vs Writer: A Conversation of Reconciliation
I am a book blogger.
Since not everyone is familiar with the term, I'll go ahead and lay it out for you. I read, analyze, and write about books. I give my opinion on characters, setting, genre, style, and sometimes even covers. I say what works, what doesn't, and what I'd like to see.
In short, I criticize.
Back - back foul demon! Burn the witch! Don't come anywhere near me!
Yeah, I know you're all thinking it. What gives me the right to rifle through someone's hard work and put its flaws on display? Who do I think I am, slandering authors with false interpretations and quotes made out of context?
I'm a writer.
Yeah, of nothing but muck and lies.
No, no, I mean I write my own fiction. Or at least I did.
What, couldn't take some of your own medicine?
Yes and no.
Like most writers, I crave exposure. I want my work out there, read by the masses and enjoyed. DeviantArt, my blog, they're both small outlets where my writing can be seen.
But, as most writers

Personal Quote: “You cannot depend on your eyes if your imagination is out of focus” - Mark Twain
A collection of photographs from my recent travels to "Little Lhasa"

Dharamshala, a quaint town at the foot of the Himalayas in Northern India is home to Tibetans since 1959 and His Holiness, Dalai Lama, the 14th reincarnation.

Every month thousands of Tibetans seek refugee after a perilous 40-day trek across the Himalayas to India. They are helped to rebuild their lives in India with the help of various organizations, monasteries and nunneries.

The community of Tibetans in exile practices the principals of non-violence, tolerance, interdependence, compassion and respect for all. Quietly committed to peacefully resolving their conflict with the Chinese government and return to a free Tibet.
