  1. Thanks Shannon – I like your point about instinct and advice – as a new writer, I am finding that a fine line that is both frustrating and confusing.

  2. It is definitely a fine line. I think it’s important to listen to what people are saying, in the writing world and specifically how it applies to your own work – thank gods for writing partners 😉 – because it’s hard to step out of our heads and see our own writing objectively. However, it’s also important to heed our inner wisdom. If someone suggests a change to something I’ve written, I might mull it over and decide that they have a good point. Or, I might decide to leave it as it is – but at least in the process I’ve really thought about my reasons for writing it like that, and I’m more confident in my choice.
