So if everything is peculiar to an individual than how can there be any objectivity at all? There isn't and in this case I am talking about the Subjectivity of what readers like, want, dislike, don't want, and why for both ends of the spectrum.
Case in point, two queries I sent out recently both came back the totally opposite comments about the exact same thing as reason for a rejection. Huh? No names to mention, but the gist is one editor said a character of mine was too emotional while a second editor said the same character wasn't emotional enough. Wha?
Now as I writer I have two opposites to ponder, base on two subjective criticisms. And as a writer what do I do about it?
Nothing. At all.
Their criticism is valid to a point, but only for them as Subjective human beings. They felt that way due to their individual views, experiences, and backgrounds, and nothing I could do would change that and make both of them accept my book. I would hope by now that most writers know that pleasing everyone is impossible. That one man' gold is another's trash. Don't take it personal, don't change what they want changed...because it won't matter to anyone else. The only bits of Objectivity in writing are what I call Static Items...things that have solid rules like capitalization and commas...things that are countable and based on hard rules...that are also Subjective based on culture and region!
Either way this conundrum I faced made me laugh and move on. Subjectivity quietly rules over all us Authors and Writers like a cloud in the sky and the best we can do is hope for someone to see our works and be on the same Subjective page we are.
