Yesterday a writing critique knocked on my door, one that was a bit harsh. Perhaps it even bruised my ego a little bit. However, more importantly it reminded me that I am not doing enough in order to stay on top of my writing game.
When I encounter negative feedback, the only thing I can do is to push harder. Negative critique means that your work is critique worthy! It is a recommendation from your audience, that it’s time to hone up your skills.
A lot of changes won’t happen over night, however that should not discourage you, or stop you from moving forward with your goals.
I Imagine critique as an encouragement to move to the next level.
