Take it personally.
Have you seen this movie trailer?
No matter what you create, no matter how many people like it, probably even more people are not going to like it. They might make fun of it like this movie does (although I believe the entire thing is more of a marketing ploy and cash-creator than anything else). But even if people don't like what you create, that doesn't mean they don't like you. Or maybe they really don't like you, who knows.
Does it matter?
What will it take for you to feel successful?
Is publishing a prize to you? (It shouldn't be a prize. Please don't think of it as a prize. Ack!)
If you can't answer these questions, and if the title of my post offends you, you probably shouldn't be writing.
