She did say you have to know your own process, so there is room for me. And it's certainly good general advice. It's far too easy to start to write to the feedback without even being aware that's what you're doing. That's why I've stopped showing first draft stuff to any but a few first readers who I know will encourage me without trying to direct me.

I was also thinking of the piles of really bad stuff that we had to read for Daikaijuzine slush. But I suspect that the people who ought to keep their stories to themselves are the last people to think they need more work, and are not in KKR's target audience :D
