"Defending"

Food for thought on having others review your work.

The inclination to defend your writing is natural. Some writers, want to tell the person making a negative comment why he or she is wrong about their writing. But defending your work will not help you to become a better writer. Toughen-up. Become a better listener. (G.W.S.)

Happy Writing,

  1. I find that the best thing to do is thank everyone for their comments and suggestions, then act on the ones I think have merit and allow the ones I disagree with to ferment a bit before I decide what to do with them. Those stinkers reveal blind spots in my writing more often than I like, but sometimes I get the pleasure of writing them off as the ravings of a lunatic. :-)
