How are you at receiving criticism? Do you prefer that others treat you with kid gloves, or go for brutal honesty?
I prefer brutal honesty. Especially when I am writing, being handled with kid gloves is a joke. If people don’t want to be honest about it, I prefer that they not lie and say they like it or give me insincere compliments. You can either avoid giving feedback by saying something like “oh, I don’t really read a lot” or similar or just be totally honest.
