Bite Your Tongue

I thought this was an interesting article. As always, it is geared for those writing in order to publish and sell their works, but it can apply to fan fiction as well. I think a certain reflexive defensiveness can result in getting less honest feedback. We have to be open to it, and that's especially true if we've asked someone to beta read, or if we've placed a story header that asks for all manner of feedback.

I especially like the idea of a "cooling period" before replying to anything that gets your ire up, no matter what. Although a critical comment on a story won't usually get me angry, there are other things that will. I've inherited my dad's short fuse. Although I've tried to work on that in my adult life, with at least some mild success, once in awhile I'm taken by surprise and "voom!" :ohtheshame

Read the article, if you haven't already. I know I've turned a lot of people on to Writer Unboxed. :smile As always, the comments are as interesting as the article.
