How do I find a balance?
I have noticed that since I joined Scribophile, I have worked less on my own writing. I am not totally sure why. In part it is because I am reading and critiquing the work of others. But I think it is more than that. It also has to do with the feedback I have received on the book chapters I have posted. The feedback is good, but it sometimes leaves me confused about how to proceed. How much of it do I want to listen to? What has been interesting is that my son is getting different feedback from people he has shown the book to. So we need to make decisions. And it is hard.
So I critique the work of others instead.
