Writing Wednesday 53: What You Don’t Want to Know

Leave a comment

I’ve long said that the most useful advice in a critique of your work is the advice that accords with what you already know. Here I try to pick apart that idea and take it a step further. I think that often, in writing as in our everyday lives, we try to fool ourselves sometimes — tell ourselves that things are working when they really aren’t. It may take a nosy friend — or an honest critique partner — to make you face the unpleasant reality.
