Be Your Own Critic

How many times you write something and ask other people to read it and tell you what they think. That is a great strategy of quality writing sorting, right?

Well, yes if the those doing the proof read is honest enough to tell you the truth. When we ask friends or family to do this for us we are doing it as a defense mechanism strategy.

Indeed we know their love for us is so deep that they can not bear to see us suffer, so they will not read the piece and tell us is great, or read just enough of it to tell us we are wonderful writers and if you ask about the part they enjoyed the most they know they have some material to back up their comment.

Every one of us usually know what it is that we have done right and wrong, after a piece we already know about the week parts, and what the best parts are. So when you write something and get it posted on your favorite publishing site, just let other people make their opinion public, and then sit back and look at the stats.

If a lot of people read your piece, but no many comments made on it might be because there is some weak parts too strong to pass the critics, and if you got a lot of readers and some comment on the piece you know you did something good.

Either way you know that if you had great amounts of traffic on a piece you have a subject winner even if people did not leave feedback on it, all you need to do is refine that subject more and re-submit again.

Think about what you like to read, and the reasons you read those types of subjects. Think about the writer and why you like him or her, apply this thoughts on your self not as your self but as an outsider would.

This requires training because humans are proud of themselves by nature, so criticizing oneself does not come easy. The most difficult part is to accept the negative comments left on your piece. I deal with it by putting my self in those people's shoes and asses things hoe they did.

It is not easy but we choose public status so we need to learn to deal with public views. It takes time to build oneself as an artist who can take it all, but believe me if we deal with negative comments on our pieces with some wit and class we can take it all.

And the same goes for the times when we need to critic on other artist work, use your tact but be honest always. And when bad comments are left with a hint of hatred do not wast your time on it, that is possibly not a reliable source of true and valuable critic.

One that follows a certain theme, the writer and the critic.. I have written an article similar to this and in it I said I would never critique another s comprehension or grammar forget about spelling... and this I stand by as I'm not qualified to do that... but what I do enjoy isd an article that stimulates comments, one that even gets a street party on the go... I might even choose a subject and attempt to make it controversial just to see the comments it creates... Good article Jesse... it is not easy to leave a comment if one does not understand the subject, but I still say leave that comment , tell the author you didn't catch their expounding, it helps them to look back and see why others did not follow. It is easy to write what we think is understandable words, but it might totally confuse others, and it is this I say one must be honest to assist each other...
