labyrinth ring

(no subject)

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!
