[quote]You know what I’ve started to doing is whenever I get serious about writing something I just write, never looking back on it until a while has past. It helps to look at things with more objectivity yourself so you can really keep just telling the story instead of getting self conscious if someone tell you it blows and you don’t really feel the passion to write because, hey, someone told you it blows. You can fix what’s shit, you can’t fix it if you never wrote it out.[/quote]
I tend to not show people anything until it’s between drafts. When they point out the faults I either discard them because “the critic didn’t understand what I was doing” I write it down and use it when I start on the next draft. I think people telling you where you fall short is a good motivator. If criticism kills your motivation than you’re probly not cut out to be a writer.
[quote]Maybe you should try just writing, whatever comes to mind just to keep your mind in shape and maybe you’ll even come across an idea or story that your passionate to tell and then it just kind of pours out of you.[/quote]
I’ve never been a big fan of that. I need structure when I’m writing.
