synecdochic wrote a fabulous and interesting essay on the issue of "nice vs mean" in feedback on fannish writing. i think it's pretty brilliant and certainly sums up and elucidates my thinking on the subject so i thought i'd link to it here. the conversation in the thread is also worth reading. and especially since someone (nameless to protect her feelings) i know has been struggling with her own responses to criticism she's been getting, it seemed very timely. let me know what you think!
i give you cakewrecks!
