(great girls, bless em) said...criticism hurts. Yes it does. but also..it helps.
i have tried to express criticism with the sole purpose of helping others realise their mistakes and improve on them. Not everyone's listened. But when they do, it has helped them. Look at the Mystery Case Files, it was going no where. Someone had to say something.
Now look at the others who were involved in it. They're giving more freedom as writers without trying to be consistent to others' writings. They're improving.
SO i'm not gonna say a lot more..but it helps. Do NOT ignore criticism.
