Like it or not,
we’re emotional creatures
and our emotions do affect our performance.
I have to write a story this week.
I’m on a deadline
that can’t be moved.
Confidence is essential
Criticism eats confidence
so until I finish this story,
I’m not reading reviews,
I’m not opening reader mail,
I’m not doing promo.
Feedback IS important
but timing of feedback is AS important.
Pair criticism, however construction,
and creativity too closely together
and creativity suffers.
