Well, my next project is under way. I've written the draft and given copies to my interviewees so they can let me know if I misquoted them, and of course I think the whole article sucks!
Nah, there's potential, I've got some more tweaking to do and the deadline is still over a week away. Sometimes when I get critiques I get really mad, but I don't want to be one of those people who can't take criticism. Sometimes people get all uptight when really what they wrote needs work. Sometimes I do get mad, then realize I'm just mad at myself because I do need to edit. Others I get mad because I feel like the advice is contradictory or unnecessary. But in the end I think I do a good job about finding the difference these days between what I need to consider and what I can ignore.
I think I may be graduating to the point of having beta readers one day.
