If I'm being honest, I have only allowed people on here to read anything I've written. So the criticism I get is always constructive. No one on here has ever made me feel like I should give up and it's only given me things to work with and improve on. I did get a criticism off my Dad a few weeks ago though. I told him I was going to enter in a few creative writing competitions to see how I compared with where I was at now. He knew I liked writing but he has never read anything I've done. He said "I could beat you in a creative writing competition" He was being deadly serious and I only got annoyed because he's never asked to read anything of mine and he's never written anything himself, or showed that he was even interested in writing. Saying that on my university graduation day he said "I could have gotten a degree" so I don't think I should pay much mind to his opinion realy ha!
