Welcome back to Express Yourself: a meme created by Jackie @ Bouquet of Books and Dani @ Entertaining Interests for writers to get to know each other a little better!
This week, they ask us about some good writing advice we were given.
I would have to say some important advice would be when you finish writing, to walk away from it for a while before you come back to read it. That way, you get a fresh perspective when you begin the editing & proofreading stage.
I also think it's important to do that with critiques, especially if, like me, you never mastered developing the thick skin people always tell you to develop. Sometimes, a critique can hurt, and if the person on the other side leans more towards being harsh over constructive, it hurts a lot. So the best thing to do is walk away for a while and come back to consider if there is any validity in what they're saying.
