Dealing with Reviews

I have a confession. I’m not keen on what it appears most people think is great fiction. Oh, I’m sure our paths will cross. Sometimes what is at the top is also something I enjoy. But I find many times when the writing community votes a short story or novel at the top of their list, whether it be a contest or someone’s list on a blog, eight times out of ten I will find the story boring and not worth my time. Or maybe it will be just okay for me, but certainly not something I’d list as highly entertaining or moving me to an emotional reaction.
