Four Ways to Feed Off Feedback

Post Date: July 4th, 2019

If you’re like me, sometimes it’s tough to process feedback on your writing in an effective way. Doesn’t matter whether it’s your writers’ group, beta readers, reviewers, your agent, your editor–none of us humans are wired to welcome criticism.

I talk through my formula for taking in feedback and making it work for you so it’s actually nutritious and life giving, instead of something that drains you.

  1. Say Yes to the No
  2. Request Compliments
  3. Point and Click
  4. Balance the Seesaw

If you’ve got ways to feed off feedback, let me know!

And shout-out to my writer pal, Becky Moynihan, who’s awesome at embracing feedback, and whose second book birthday is upon us, ADAPTIVE! Check out her YA dystopian fantasy series here.
