This blog's question is about aftermath:

How do you deal with feedback?

Are you sensitive to critique? Do you get annoyed if people don't understand? Do you absorb it like a sponge?

Me, I crave crave feedback. And often I'll take it into account, but sometimes I'm not sure what to do when someone points out an "edit" which is actually an effect I was deliberately aiming for. Got to say, though, sometimes I justify to myself why some of the bad points someone points out aren't so bad after all, I suppose I really should just listen to my audience. As much as I love critiques, I have to admit that it's positive feedback that keeps me going.

How about you guys?

i love it when people give me feedback, however i'm never quite certain what to do with it.. I'll think about what they said, leave it for consideration when writing future pieces, but I won't go back and do anything to the piece they critiqued.

Either that, or i'll just forget what they said and move on in life.
......I'll admit, that isn't very practical of me....
But oh,well. One thing I don't like is when people get butt-hurt over a critique. It isn't worth it, and your paper isn't awful just because a person said they didn't like something. Meh

I've gotten like two critiques, and they're usually nice to hear when they're short and simple and tell you that it's good, this is specifically good as is this, and the critiques don't pick on everything. I recently got a critique like that, though, and it was soo in depth that I was like what and picked on really tiny things 0-0

Then there were some things that they critiqued that are there for a purpose, but the critiquer doesn't know. I did appreciate the feedback, though I was like 0-0

So i'm not opposed to feedback, but intense feedback *shivers*...okay bye.

I take feedback usually easily, if it's something harsh an unnessarsary, I ignore it. But if it's somthing that should help me with my work, then I take it in and try to use it in my next writing page.

Feedback is wonderful and I'm always grateful for it, though it is necessary to point out from time to time why I did this or that technically incorrect thing. A good critique usually doesn't miss the mark on that, so they're always another thing to strive for.

Personally, though, I love offending people. The best feedback is when you write something well enough that the only qualms people have with it is that it pissed them off. That way you know you're really getting close to your audience. All other feedback is nice, but offended audiences are the best.
