Very interesting feature. I agree, you have to learn to take criticism and learn from it. I worked on a national magazine and wrote a few 'emotional' features. The first one I submitted, the editor told me, 'It's fabulous, darling," [honestly!] 'Now just take it back and put it through the word processor, one more time...' I still smile at that. I was a complete newby and had no idea what I'd written that needed thrown out, or what I'd written that was worth keeping. I just kept rewriting it until she nodded and said 'great. We'll schedule it for September's issue.' We all need editors who tell us yes, it's good, but now take it back and do this part/that part again. Without them, our writing would never improve.
