A Scientist's View of a Writer's Thick Skin
My skin is growing thicker by the day. How thick?
Hubbie asked me yesterday if I'd read my one-star reviews on Amazon if I ever got published. I puffed out my chest, and proudly declared, "Hell no."
Hmm. I thought I was at the green layer (above) but I think I'm still thick in the Overcooked Salmon layer.
Will I ever get to Superman level, titanium-alloy, Kevlar-strength skin?
I doubt it.
So what layer are you living with right now?
P.S. Ignore the unwaxed, unplucked, unshaved hair above. It's not my skin. This is for TEACHING purposes.
