When it comes to my writing, I know what I want and know when I've accomplished it. This leave me, normally, little room for those who would have written the story differently. I will always listen to those opinions politely but my touchstone has never changed: Do I like it? If so, I post it. If not, I revise it.
Some of the notes about my recent 'A Woman of Size' had valid points --- see reasonable me! ---. I've reworked it with those ideas in mind and have reposted the story.
Thanks for your reading what i write and for the messages that you've sent.
