KNOWLEDGE BOMB: TARGET - FEEDBACK & CRITICISM

I do a weekly recap of 5 great web-things that relate to writing called the Fab-Five Friday, but oftentimes I find way more than 5 useful things.  So, I've decided to periodically drop a knowledge bomb full of writerly goodness in hopes of sharing even more of the things I come across that inspire.

Todays bomb is courtesy of author Gail Carson Levine, who discusses what to do when you are asked to perform re-writes and/or edits.  Gail's thoughts are profound and encouraging.  Here's an excerpt of what she had to say:

"Just listening works well under any circumstance.  If we explain or defend, the criticism doesn’t penetrate.  We need to sit with it before we understand its value - or worthlessness."


So head over to her blog to check out her entire message, it's one I wouldn't want any writer to miss.

  1. When you think about it, you generally don't get a chance to explain to average Joe reader, so your book needs to ROK SOX without it.
