I've had several occassions where some of my friends have made fun of my writing. "This is so cheesy" or "What a nerdy thing to write about" or they quote a line from my writing jokingly. Sometimes it's funny, but I also feel that overall it kind of hurts. Alot of the time, when I ask my friends to look at my writing, even if it SUCKS they either won't know any better, or will just be too nice to say anything. I have friends that don't know the different between a period or a comma when in comes to writing. I have friends that would never say anything but "good job" or "I love it" about my work, and feel bad after actually giving constructive feedback. My writer friends, though, they are great. Sometimes we edit each other's work and just talk about writing. But sometimes they, too, make fun of my work or won't be honest with critique. I dunno.. what do you think?
