March 22 Day 744: Addressing Criticisms

Everybody’s a critic. Nobody likes criticisms–me included.

This evening I finished revisions on a piece that I originally posted about January 16 Day 679: Writers Block and submitted last month. The reviewer comments were biting or maybe I read too much snark into them. I had to put them away for a while before I could constructively address them.

Ultimately, I ended up restructuring the piece and tightening the argument. It was far more work than I was planning to put in. I liked the original submission, yet I have to admit that this version is better. I hope the editor sees it the same way.

I’ll sleep on it tonight. Maybe get some feedback from others tomorrow and send it off.
