The gift of feedback

Be thankful.

When starting out as writers, it's hard to get feedback. Getting it can be a gift.

And it's not always easy to take. It can hurt and feel like an attack.

But, for the most part, a person who spends the time and gives you notes only wants to see you improve.

So be grateful, say thank you, and try to understand what they offer. Sincere, solid feedback is a rare gift we're lucky to receive.
